The Cleveland Browns have also fired offensive coordinator Todd Haley. This comes after the team fired head coach Hue Jackson.
Haley’s name was initially being brought up as a candidate to become the interim head coach after Jackson was fired. However, that will not happen now.
Haley joined Jackson’s coaching staff in the off-season. The thought when Jackson hired the veteran coach that the head coach would oversee the entire staff.
However, Haley could run the offense as he wanted.
The two men had a disagreement recently over play calling. Jackson said that he may pull the play-calling duties and take over the role himself.
Despite what Jackson said after Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh.
“There’s nothing wrong with my relationship with Haley,” Jackson said following Sunday’s game. “I said what I said last week [about wanting to be more involved in the offense] and obviously it had legs. But I’ve never said I wanted to take over play-calling. I said I wanted to help. That’s it. So today, now all the sudden it’s this big, old thing. Because, sure, everybody is going to look and say ‘What’s going on?’ But the only thing that’s going on is we need to get better. We need to coach better. We need to get better.”
Baker Mayfield — the 2018 No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft — reportedly did not like Jackson’s coaching style. Mayfield appears to have regressed with the two men bickering with each other.
The Browns front office, led by GM John Dorsey, decided to clean house in an attempt to get Mayfield back on track.
Haley was hired by the Browns on January 22nd, 2018. Ten months later and a week later, he was fired.
Prior to joining the Browns coaching staff, he worked as the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator from 2012-2017. He was the Kansas City Chiefs head coach from 2009 through 2011.
Haley also was the Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008. He also spent time as the New York Jets, Chicago Bears, and Dallas Cowboys wide receivers coach from 1997 through 2006.
He began his NFL career as a scouting assistant with the New York Jets in 1995 and 1996.
