The Cleveland Browns fired head coach Hue Jackson midway through his third season with the team. After racking up a 3-36 record in just over two year's with the team, Jackson found himself out of the job.

With an opening at the head coaching position, the Browns have kicked things into high gear. Jackson's departure and the promotion of Freddie Kitchens to offensive coordinator has worked out especially well for quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Greg Williams currently serves as the interim head coach, but one NFL insider suggests a more permanent solution could come from a group of three head coaches.

Albert Breer named New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley and Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell as potential replacements for Hue Jackson.

Riley has been linked to the Browns job, in part, thanks to his connection with Baker Mayfield.

The Browns coaching search is poised to dominate headlines in the coming weeks.
