Interim chief trainer, Gregg Williams has emerged as a top coaching candidate for the Cleveland Browns, according to media reports.
Cleveland Browns general manager, John Dorsey himself is seriously keeping options open in his hunt for a new head coach.
And the list actually includes Williams who came in temporarily, though, following the dismissal of Hue Jackson on October 29.
“I think very much that he deserves that,” Dorsey made the disclosure to reporters in respect of Williams on Wednesday.
But Dorsey failed to comment on whether the search for the next manager would extend into the college coaching ranks.
And that is where Oklahoma incumbent head coach, Lincoln Riley has had a whole lot of links to the Browns.
Jackson loses job as Cleveland Browns coach
Hue Jackson is officially in the labour market after losing his job as the chief coach of the Cleveland Browns.
The NFL franchise have made a decision to part ways with their head coach after three wins in 40 games.
It took the Cleveland Browns 635 days to finally come out as winners in a match once again.
But after just 39 days since that time, the club have decided to sack Jackson and also with immediate effect.
The Browns became only the second team ever to go through a 16-game NFL season without winning back in 2017.
There were wild celebrations in Cleveland back in the month of September of this very year.
And that was after their team defeated the New York Jets for their first triumph since Christmas Eve of 2016.
But the Browns have won just a game since then, losing the last three, leading to Jackson’s dismissal on Monday.
His record in Cleveland stands at three victories, 36 defeats and one tie from 40 outings which is very disappointing.
The draw came in the first game of this season against the Pittsburgh Steelers who spanked the Browns 33-18 on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Cleveland Browns recently celebrated in great style after finally ending their 635-day win-less run in American Football.
Barack Obama was the president of the United States of America (USA) when the team last picked up a win.
And that gives little or no wonder why the players celebrated the end of their run in an emphatic manner.
After a whopping number of 635 days and 19 games without a victory of any kind, the Browns finally excelled.
