Browns fired Hue Jackson, per source. Although Cleveland has its best record (2-5-1) since the 2016 season, it wasn't the tenure the club expected.

Dorsey had the good fortune to partner with a good head coach in Andy Reid when the two joined the Chiefs after the 2012 season.

Hue Jackson is out as head coach of the Cleveland Browns, following yesterday's 33-18 loss to the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to, Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor is the favorite to be hired by the Browns to replace Jackson. The arrival of Dorsey suggested otherwise; every G.M. wants to hire his own coach, and Dorsey surely wanted to move on much more quickly from Hue Jackson than Dorsey did.

The Browns, who have not made the playoffs since 2002, have lost three straight games after a promising start to this season.

Jackson and Haley had been feuding in recent weeks over the team's offense and it became public following a 26-23 overtime loss at Tampa Bay in which Jackson said after the game he needed to get more involved.

Also, running backs coach Freddie Kitchens has been promoted to offensive co-ordinator.

Following Sunday's game, Jackson downplayed any dispute with his offensive co-ordinator. "I never said I wanted to take over play-calling". First came news of the inevitable, that Jackson had been fired. The only thing that is going on is that we need to get better.

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns have decided to make a head coaching change.
