Finally, the Cleveland Browns and Hue Jackson have parted ways, as he was fired Monday as head coach of the team. But, the question is, should Jackson have seen it coming? The last five head coaches of the Browns were fired after the second game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the respective season.
Well, the Browns lost to the Steelers, 33-18, on Sunday so Jackson might have had his apprehensions coming into word Monday. But, the writing might have been on the wall after Sunday’s game when it was rumored that Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley had a relationship that no longer could be fixed.
That was not all though. Jackson had a career record of 3-36-1 and that is considered to the worst head-coaching record for one team, with a minimum of 40 games coached, in NFL history according to Elias Sports Bureau. Plus, through Jackson’s tenure of a little over two seasons as head coach, he has had seven different starting quarterbacks.
So was it really a surprise for his firing?
