​The Cleveland Browns are finally heading in a new direction after another disappointing season. 


After starting off this year with a 2-5 record, head coach Hue Jackson was fired. According to reports, the interim head coach will defensive coordinator Gregg Williams despite earlier reports of Al Saunders taking over.

​​Under ​Jackson's leadership, the ​Browns became a laughingstock of the NFL. The team went 1-15 in his first year in the 2016 season and then 0-16 in the following year in 2017. It was a miracle that Jackson wasn't fired after starting off his tenure with the franchise with 14 straight losses.

​​This year, things had the potential to be better as the Browns finally captured their first win in two seasons in Week 3 against the Jets.


Williams, meanwhile, has an extremely long history of working as a defensive coordinator in the NFL. He has been working in the league as an assistant or coordinator since 1990 and was head coach of the Buffalo Bills from 2001-03.


This isn't the only personnel change that Cleveland is making. According to reports, Freddie Kitchens is the new offensive coordinator after Todd Haley was shown the door.

Kitchens joined the Browns as the running backs coach and associate head coach this year after being with the Cardinals since 2007. This will be his first time serving as offensive coordinator.


The Browns were due for an overhaul, and hopefully these changes will finally turn the franchise  around.
