Analysts wondered if OU head coach Lincoln Riley would be considered for the position, especially considering his close ties with Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Cleveland, which holds a 2-5-1 record this season, also reportedly worked out Junior Galette on Monday.

For now, Gregg Williams will serve as interim head coach, and the team, once again, will go through the coaching carousel.

Cleveland Browns NewsThe Browns job is an attractive opening that should draw interest around the National Football League and the college coaching circles.

But the Browns firing head coach Hue Jackson?

"We certainly only wish Hue, Michelle, and his family the best moving forward".

The Browns, who have not made the playoffs since 2002 amid a slew of coaching changes, have lost three straight games after a promising start to this season.

Cleveland's schedule doesn't get any easier in the coming weeks - as they take on the Chiefs, Falcons and Bengals before December.

The team fired Hue Jackson after their 33-18 Week 8 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers after winning just three games in three seasons.

Jackson, pictured with Joe Flacco the Baltimore Ravens earlier this month, was sacked after three wins in three seasons.

There were wild celebrations in Cleveland last month after their team beat the New York Jets for their first win since Christmas Eve 2016.
