The Cleveland Browns are certainly showing signs of improvement this season, but dysfunction still lingers within the organization.

Last week, head coach Hue Jackson made some interesting comments that hinted at the possibility of him sharing play-calling duties with Todd Haley. Although he then clarified that he doesn't want to bash his offensive coordinator, it's become apparent that tension exists on the coaching staff.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Browns could remove Haley in the near future because of this in-house feud.

From Sports Illustrated:

Dysfunction in Cleveland's offensive coaching staff could cause the Browns ownership to "remove" offensive coordinator Todd Haley, per the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Cleveland will need to have an impressive showing against Pittsburgh today, especially if Haley wants to retain his job. This isn't the first time that he's battled with coaches or teammates, as his relationship with Ben Roethlisberger was noticeably hostile.

Even if the offense takes positive strides this weekend, Haley and Jackson might be past the point of no return.

Stay tuned.
