The latest coaching shake up in Cleveland pro sports has me wondering if the owner of the Cleveland Browns isn’t in over his head?
Word came Monday that both Browns head coach Hue Jackson and Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley had been shown the door, and should have caught no one by surprise.
Jackson’s 3-36-1 record was the 3rd worst for an NFL coach in history.
His publicized feud with his Offensive Coordinator was, no doubt, a distraction for a team trying to find it’s way out of mediocrity.
I suspect the Browns owner has never had to deal with the egos that come with highly paid coaches and even higher paid players in the business world he’s lived in, and I’m wondering if his “hands on” approach will ever work in pro sports today.
I’m thinking Jimmy Haslam is learning that operating a chain of successful truck stops is a whole lot easier than trying to run a pro football team.
Despite what we’ve been told is a lot of promise for the Browns, I’m wondering who’d want to coach in that environment.
I know I wouldn’t regardless of what the job paid.
That’s the way I see it.
