Browns fire head coach Hue Jackson

Todd Haley Cleveland Browns

Hue Jackson's ignominious run as Cleveland Browns head coach has ended.

After a promising start to the season, the Browns lost three straight games, as calls for a change grew louder from the fans.

The Browns are 2-5-1 this season.

The Browns also dismissed offensive co-ordinator Todd Haley and named defensive co-ordinator Gregg Williams interim coach.

Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson meets with reporters after an NFL football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh, Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018. Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Pat Shurmur, Rob Chudzinski and Mike Pettine all met the same demise. Haley was in his first season on Jackson's staff after spending the previous six in Pittsburgh.

The Browns will face the Chiefs in Week 9 action Sunday.

But as the losing piled up, and the Browns struggled to score points week in and week out, it became evident that the Browns and Haley were not, after all, a match made in heaven. I said wanted to help, that's it. We're pretty sure Wylie Coyote thinks Halloween is for yoga lovers and devil worshippers (not mutually exclusive), but something tells us even he would have a good chortle over this one.

ESPN and the NFL Network were first to report the news of Jackson's firing.
