Cleveland Browns Fire Head Coach Hue Jackson

Todd Haley Cleveland Browns

Hue Jackson was sacked on Monday, a day after the Browns lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and fell to 2-5-1.

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and wide receivers coach Al Saunders are all interim candidates capable of finishing the season.

Jackson is the six straight Cleveland coach to be fired following the team's second game against Pittsburgh. Romeo Crennel, Eric Mangini, Pat Shurmur, Rob Chudzinski and Mike Pettine all met the same demise.

Jackson, 53, went 8-8 in his sole season in charge of the Oakland Raiders in 2011, making his overall National Football League record 11-44-1.

The Browns will face the Chiefs in Week 9 action Sunday. Kitchens joined the Browns when Haley was hired earlier this year.

Palestinian militants fire rockets, Israel strikes Gaza
Palestinians gather at the Israel-Gaza fence during a protest calling for lifting the blockade on Gaza, in Gaza, October 26, 2018. Reports Friday suggested a deal had been reached that would see the protests end in exchange for an easing of the blockade.

The Browns have been more competitive following a 0-16 season, but the Browns continue to be wrapped in drama and dysfunction under Jackson.

Hours out from the firing of Jackson by the Browns, the question remains: who will be the coaching staff in Cleveland by the time the day is through?

Last week, Jackson's offer to help Haley following a loss in Tampa Bay underscored another power struggle as Jackson fought to stay in control.

"There's nothing wrong with my relationship with Haley", Jackson said. "We don't need to change much". 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.
