Jackson looks for Haley to lend hand
After a winless season, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson is getting some help.
The former Glendale Community College quarterback will have a new play-caller on offense as the Browns hired Steelers assistant coach and former Kansas City head coach Todd Haley as the new offensive coordinator.
Haley was not asked to return to Pittsburgh after the squad was upset at home by the Jacksonville Jaguars, 45-42, on Jan. 14 in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Pittsburgh finished with the NFL’s No. 3 offense in yards per game (377.9), third in passing yards (4,380), No. 20 in rushing (104.2) and eighth in points per game (25.4).
Jackson was his team’s offensive coordinator last season as Cleveland became only the second team in NFL history to finish 0-16.
Cleveland was No. 24 in offense in yards per game (308.9), 22nd in passing yards per game (201.8), No. 18 in rushing yards (107.1) and dead last in points per game (14.6).
