CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The day has finally come: After three wins in the past three seasons, Hue Jackson has been fired as the Cleveland Browns head coach.
Watch the press conference addressing Monday’s terminations here:
Jackson was the team’s fifth head coach since 2010.
The team decided to cut ties with the coach after a lackluster start to the season.
Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, a 27-year coaching veteran, will serve as the team’s interim head coach.
The Browns are currently 2-5-1 and had been struggling with Jackson at the helm.
The 53-year-old had one season of head coaching experience before coming to Cleveland.
His best record to date was back in 2011 when he led the Raiders to an 8-8 record.
Even though he is off the team, he is not off the payroll.
A horrific stat from the archives:
The Brownies fell to the Steelers this past Sunday 33-18 and will have another challenge against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 4.
