This one just feels appropriate. It really does.
After returning to Cincinnati as an assistant when he was dismissed as head coach of the Cleveland Browns, the ever-confounding Hue Jackson is headed back to the unemployment line.

Jackson was previously a Bengals assistant under Marvin Lewis for four years, including two as offensive coordinator, before ascending to the top job for the Browns. In this latest stint, he was a special assistant to Lewis. And he's now been fired for the second time in three months.
Before you jump for joy over the Hue Jackson firing, keep in mind... his evaluation of talent is top tier.— Elise Jesse (@Elise_JesseWLWT) January 11, 2019
He is the one who pushed the Cleveland Browns to draft Baker Mayfield and Miles Garrett.
Jackson shouldn't have all that much trouble finding a new job, but his days as an NFL head coach may very well be over literally forever. With an 11-44 overall record as a head coach and an outrageous 3-36 mark with the Browns, the proof that's in the pudding is rotten. Spoiled. Rancid.
But hey, if Kliff Kingsbury can fail upwards into an NFL job, it's actually kinda hard to write off Hue despite it all.
