To the surprise of absolutely no one, former Cleveland Browns head coach and all-terrible head coach Hue Jackson has been shut down in regards to his tanking allegations. Jackson came back into the limelight following former Miami head coach Brian Flores’ tanking allegations involving the Dolphins.
While the lack of competitive integrity of the Browns during that period is not surprising, Hue Jackson was still an inadequate head coach. Jackson would consistently make decisions that would cost team wins, resulting in Huey Headlines having a 1-31 record through his first two seasons. Cleveland’s hard lean into (remedial) analytics did not help matters, but Jacksons’ ineptitude as a head coach only made things worse.
