Fans were delighted when the Browns landed Hue Jackson to be the new head coach of the franchise. After a string of questionable or seemingly unqualified hires, Jackson gave the team a legitimate leader.
Jackson came to the team with a new front office, led by Sashi Brown and Paul DePodesta, the latter making a name for himself in the MLB. The move seemed unconventional, yet fans were at least excited that Haslam was trying to actively turnaround his team.
The success of this new group has yet to show itself in the form of wins, but the idea of a rebuild was the plan all along. Knowing if the excitement related to their hirings was valid will not be known until at least 2018, when the team should be showing it in the form of wins. If not, well, the process will start over again from the beginning.
The good news is that the group is not going to get fired after one season, unless Haslam loses his mind and makes a change. The problem is that any major changes may cause some fans to ditch the team altogether.
