Hue Jackson's ignominious run as Cleveland Browns head coach has ended.

The Browns are 2-5-1 this season. John Dorsey and the Cleveland Browns are cleaning house this afternoon, leaving defensive coordinator Gregg Williams as the last man standing of the Browns' coaching triumvirate set at the beginning of 2018.
