- Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 29, 2018And this, as @PFTCommenter pointed out ahead of the curve last week, marks the sixth straight Browns head coach that has been fired after the second game of the season against the Steelers.
Under him, the Browns finished as the worst team in the National Football League in two consecutive seasons, including an 0-16 campaign in 2017, only the second winless season in National Football League history.
"This is not a throwing in of the towel", the Browns' owner said Monday afternoon.
That the Cleveland Browns fired coach Hue Jackson on Monday can't exactly be seen as a surprise.
It's not immediately clear who will fill in for Jackson for the rest of this season.
The Browns are 2-5-1 this season.
That discord centered on the direction of the offense under Haley, with Jackson saying he would "help" while behind the scenes pondering whether to fire Haley.
They say that wisdom often never comes at all, so it's OK if it arrives late.
Since 2013 the Browns have gone a combined 17-70-1 under Chudzinski, Pettine and Jackson. "I know that it is something that we are not going to tolerate moving forward".
Dorsey's first Browns draft, headed by quarterback Baker Mayfield, cornerback Denzel Ward and running back Nick Chubb, is showing signs of becoming a good group.
The Browns, after winning just one game the past two seasons, got off to a 2-2-1 start with wins over the New York Jets and the Baltimore Ravens.
Dorsey doesn't have reason to worry about that scenario anymore, however, as Haley also was sacked Monday afternoon. First came news of the inevitable, that Jackson had been fired.
