In Cleveland Browns rumors, there’s conflicting reports as to whether or not Hue Jackson has been kept abreast of the latest news surrounding the NFL Draft.
From an outsiders perspective, no coaching seat is hotter than that of Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson’s.
Jackson is 1-31 in his two years with the Browns a the organization has sunk to new lows when it comes to losing.
Granted, that’s not all Hue’s fault. The organization’s decision to rely heavily on analytics gutted the roster and left the veteran play caller with a roster that was simply just too young to win.
Ownership has been adamant that Jackson will stay with Cleveland, going as far to as to issue an edict, stating Jackson will return on the same memo that revealed Sashi Brown was fired as executive vice president of football operations.
With perception being that Jackson’s job is in trouble, the media sharks are looking for any indication that his seat is getting warmer, and they found it, when Sports Illustrated’s Robert Klemko tweeted that Jackson was out of the loop when it came to the Browns’ draft decision.
Michael Silver of NFL Network and a friend of Jackson chimed in stating this was not the case.
There’s a sect of Browns fans who aren’t crazy about Jackson, but these find folks better hope what Silver is tweeting holds true.
Cleveland is about to make its most important draft pick of all time. The entire organization needs to be committed in helping this young 20-something succeed.
From the owner, to the GM, to the coach, to the video replay coordinator: Everyone has to be behind the future of the franchise.
Jackson is still the coach of this team, and as the head coach, he’ll kind of have this big task of trying to win on Sunday, while at the same time, turning is young quarterback into an NFL starter.
The Browns can’t afford to exclude anyone from this process. If you do that, you’re going to get the GM texting coaches on the sidelines demanding the unprepared rookie get in the game.
Jackson’s not making the final decision here, but it only makes sense for John Dorsey to keep his coach in the loop regarding the makeup of the team next season.
