Former Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson doesn’t want to be remembered for his time in Cleveland.
Jackson was fired after an abysmal tenure with the Browns. He went 3-36-1 running the Browns, and was fired before finishing his third season. Despite that, he doesn’t want people to define him by that performance.
Coaching - Record - Years - Years - Cleveland
“My coaching record over 32 years speaks for itself. I don’t think 2½ years at Cleveland should tarnish my whole career but at the same time people have to know that you are out there and are willing and able to work,” Jackson told the Associated Press.
I’m actually mildly sympathetic to Jackson’s position and opinion. Nobody really succeeds in Cleveland. The Browns have had several coaches over the past few years, and they’ve all bombed.
