CLEVELAND — The Browns made a long-awaited move this week when they chose to hire an offensive coordinator. The man for the job is Todd Haley, who held the same position with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fans seemed to be pleased that someone other than head coach Hue Jackson will be calling the plays, but sources have told Cleveland Mocks that Haley’s role is set to increase during the season.
The sources have said that after the Browns’ inevitable slow start to the season, Haley will become the interim head coach of the team following the firing of Jackson.
Owner Jimmy Haslam is pleased that Haley will be able to fill multiple roles.
“It is great to hire a guy with previous head coaching experience,” Haslam said. “I will now be able to fire Hue midseason and have a guy I can trust.”
It is possible the draw of multiple duties helped Haley choose to come to the Browns. Once he takes over for Jackson, Haley plans to inspire the team to new heights of multiple wins in a single season. If he is able to accomplish that feat, then he may never have to buy a drink in Cleveland ever again.
