CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –

Cleveland Browns officially name Hue Jackson as head coach.

Hue Jackson will become the eight Browns head coach since their return in 1999 and replaces Mike Pettine, who was fired after going 10-22 in two seasons.

Jackson previously served as offensive coordinator with the Cincinnati Bengals. Under Jackson, the Bengals went to the post-season in four straight seasons.

Jackson interviewed with the Browns on Sunday, following the Bengals loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday. Jackson was a fan favorite among Browns fans. The Browns are very familiar with Jackson, as he has been with the Cincinnati Bengals since 2012. He was hired as the Bengals secondary/assistant special teams in 2012, after getting fired as the Oakland Raiders head coach after just one season.

The Cleveland Browns have the No. 2 overall pick in this years draft.
