While firing someone – anyone? everyone? – would certainly make headlines and make the hoople heads happy, interim coaches simply do not work.

Luckily, despite being pegged as having an “itchy trigger finger,” owner Jimmy Haslam reiterated on Sunday his preseason vow to not blow things up in Berea.
“No change,” was Haslam’s answer when asked by two reporters if he planned to get busy during the bye week.
If the Browns were to make a chance, especially if it was Pettine, who would they select to take his place? It would have to be someone from the current staff and doesn’t that mean they are also part of the problem? Does anyone really believe that if one of the coaches had the answers that the staff wouldn’t have already figured it out?
Change just for the sake of change is, to put it mildly, simply stupid.
And if you are one of those fans who are dead set on getting your pound of flesh? Don’t worry, there will be plenty of time for firing once the final whistle blows at FirstEnergy Stadium on Jan. 3.
