The Browns’ coaching search is over, and Hue Jackson is their man.
Jackson will be hired today as the Browns’ next head coach, according to multiple reports.
That’s a coup for Cleveland, as Jackson had become a very attractive candidate after doing good work as the offensive coordinator of the Bengals. Both the 49ers and Giants were interested in Jackson’s services, and some reports indicated that the 49ers had at one point identified Jackson as their first choice.
Jackson will have an uphill battle in Cleveland, having to turn around a franchise that has become viewed as perhaps the worst in the NFL in recent years. But Jackson is a well-regarded coach around the league, and the Browns can be glad that they got their man.
