Hue Jackson will not be left in London, whatever the final result of Sunday’s tilt versus the Minnesota Vikings.
NFL Community Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning on NFL GameDay Kickoff that Jackson’s job in Cleveland is secure for now.
“I am instructed at this level Hue Jackson is secure, even [if there was] an unsightly loss [today],” Rapoport stated. “… However firing Hue Jackson now, on the aircraft dwelling, as we have seen previously, can be in opposition to all the pieces the Browns are attempting to do. Modifications are anticipated to return on the finish of the season in some kind or style. However at this level, they aren’t anticipated to contain Hue Jackson.”
Whether or not these end-of-year plans will embody Jackson must be decided by how the ultimate 9 video games of the season end up. The Browns are 1-22 within the head coach’s first two seasons heading into Sunday’s showdown in London.
Fixed biking of coaches has induced a few of the tumult inside a Browns group that begins over each couple of years. Scrapping Jackson can be one other new starting for a franchise screaming for consistency. Nonetheless, may the Browns deliver again a coach after one other one-win season or — Lord, badist us — an Zero-16 file?
For now, the one reply is that Jackson will not be left with a pink slip on a London tarmac. Every part else is wait-and-see.
