Former Browns head coach Hue Jackson is known for his terrible Cleveland record, but that didn’t stop him shooting at one of the newest members of the NFL head coach fraternity.
Jackson joined the social media takedown of Eagle head coach Nick Sirianni, who verbally berated himself about the system he was trying to implement in Philadelphia.
“The next thing that is very important to me is that we build an intelligent football team, that we have an intelligent football team here, and I know that we have the people who do that,” said Siriani on Friday afternoon. “The first part of being smart is knowing what to do. We will … we will know … we will have systems that are easier to learn, okay? Complicated about the defense or offense they are up against or the specific team group they are up against, but easy for us to learn. Because when we learn our system and can master our system well, our talent can gain the upper hand. Thinking less means adopting talent. But we need systems and we will have systems for that. “
Social media broke out and Sirianni’s video went viral. Jackson was there on Friday night.
“Sorry, but I can’t remember ever sounding like this,” Jackson said on Twitter.
He set a 3-36-1 record with the Browns in two and a half seasons, which included a 0-16 mark in 2017.
Jackson’s success in Cincinnati helped him get two NFL head coaching jobs. He went 8-8 with the Raiders in 2011 before being fired.
One fan took an exception from their tweet and gave a passionate response.
Jackson also served as the Bengals offensive coordinator in 2015. Cincinnati finished the race 12-4 and won the AFC North. He took the job as head coach at Browns before being fired in the 2018 season.
Jackson hasn’t been in the NFL since 2018. He interviewed the position as head coach for Bengals in January 2019, but the front office selected current head coach Zac Taylor.
He is interviewed for multiple jobs over the past few seasons, but didn’t find his way back to the NFL.
It is safe to say that Jackson is not coming to see Sirianni’s staff in Philadelphia.
