Browns Fire Coach Hue Jackson After Disappointing Start

Hue Jackson’s tenure in Cleveland is now over.

The Cleveland Browns fired their head coach after another disappointing start to the season. Jackson, who went 3-36-1 in two-plus seasons, was dismissed on Monday by general manager John Dorsey. Jackson’s firing came one day after the Browns lost their 25th straight road game — 20 of them coming with Jackson in charge.

Hue Jackson has been at the helm since 2016 but sealed his fate with a 33-18 loss to the Steelers on Sunday as the team dropped to 2-5-1 on the season. He was 3-36-1 in his two-plus seasons as head coach.

In his career as an NFL head coach, Jackson owns a .205 win percentage, which ranks 218th out of 219 coaches in NFL history. Only former Eagles coach/owner Bert Bell owns a worse win percentage at .176 from 1936-1941.

It’s not immediately clear who will fill in for Jackson for the rest of this season. The Browns host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
