The Browns also announced that defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who is in his second season with Cleveland, will be the interim coach. Running backs coach and associate head coach Freddie Kitchens will serve as offensive coordinator.
Only an hour after reports surfaced that the Cleveland Browns had fired coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley, Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley was asked whether he had any interest in coaching in the NFL. “I knew that was coming,” Riley said during his weekly news conference. “No, not right now. You sit here and answer these questions and I always want to be truthful. The truth for me is I love Oklahoma. I love coaching here.”
