Instead, he won three games in three seasons.
Jackson, from the accounts of those who know him personally, is a good man.
Under him, the Browns finished as the worst team in the National Football League in two consecutive seasons, including an 0-16 campaign in 2017, only the second winless season in National Football League history. Sure he's been more tight-lipped as a rookie with the Browns, but said personality seemingly clashed with Jackson on the sideline. He's probably better off moving forward this year without Jackson in his ear. They lost 21-18 in New Orleans, 45-42 in overtime in Oakland and 26-23 in overtime in Tampa Bay and had a season-opening overtime tie with the Steelers.
The Browns also dismissed offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
The Haslams along with executive vice president JW Johnson, general manager John Dorsey and assistant GM Eliot Wolf met with the team around 2 p.m.to announce the changes internally. Kitchens joined the Browns when Haley was hired earlier this year.
Outside of their poor record and inability to win close games, this could be one of the primary reasons Jackson was sacked. "We don't need to change much".
