Jackson reportedly had planned to meet with ownership Monday in hopes of taking the offensive play-calling from Haley and possibly seeking endorsement from them to fire the offensive coordinator.

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

The awesome thing is Jackson and his supporters can make the argument that the 2-5-1 record could be as good as 6-2, based on the close results that went the wrong way. They tied Pittsburgh in Week 1, but were beaten 33-18 on Sunday by the Steelers. Haley was in his first season on Jackson's staff after spending the previous six in Pittsburgh.

The Browns will host the 7-1 Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9.

The Browns have been more competitive following a 0-16 season, but the Browns continue to be wrapped in drama and dysfunction under Jackson.

Jackson is the fourth head coach since the end of the 2012 season owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam have fired.

First Hue Jackson, now Todd Haley.

First reported by notable National Football League insider Ian Rapoport, the Browns will definitely be in more than one coaching market this offseason.

The Cleveland Browns in January 2016 hired Hue Jackson as their new head coach.
