CLEVELAND — Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is at the top of the Cleveland Browns’ list for the head coach position after a five-hour interview Sunday afternoon.
Multiple reports are saying the Browns are ready to make him an aggressive, substantial offer to become the new head coach of the Cleveland Browns.
