Browns Coach Hue Jackson told reporters Sunday that he feels “very comfortable” that Browns associate head coach and quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton will stay with the Browns instead of accepting a job at the University of Michigan.

Earlier Sunday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has been telling recruits that Hamilton will be joining his staff.

Hamilton was an assistant under Harbaugh at Stanford. Michigan recently lost passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jedd Fisch to UCLA, so there’s an opening on Harbaugh’s staff.

“I have known about the Jim Harbaugh situation from a week and a half ago,” Jackson said, per the team’s official transcript. “I feel very comfortable that Pep is staying. Anything can happen. We want him to stay. We hope he stays. Like I said, a young man is entitled to do what they feel is best for them, but I would think we have created a good environment and I hope things are still good. As far as I know, things are.”

Hamilton was the Colts’ offensive coordinator from 2013 until being fired during the 2015 season.

  1. Pep should bail from that burning wreckage of a franchise. Being associated with that kind of failure is a stink that is hard to wash off.

  2. love partial quotes….. Better context is “I feel very comfortable that Pep is staying. Anything can happen.”…

  3. Let’s imagine if Pep was the OC for this past season with the Browns. If he had lined up Joe Thomas at WR numerous times and abandoned the running game he would have been fired.

    Hue Jackson should take this to heart and re-examine his own play calling. Better yet he should consider having Pep call the plays and concentrate on becoming a good HC.

  4. It wasn’t too long ago that Pep Hamilton was the equivalent this years bright mind of the future Sean McVay. In 2014 Pep had like 9 interviews and was the must have for a young bright talent in Oakland known as Derek Carr.
