The Cleveland Browns have reportedly made another major coaching move in the wake of firing head coach Hue Jackson.

Todd Haley, the Browns' offensive coordinator, has also reportedly been fired, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

"Source: The Browns have fired OC Todd Haley. More madness," he tweeted.

Browns management had reportedly been concerned about the dynamic between Jackson and Haley and there appeared to be tension between the two. Most people, though, only expected one of them to be fired. Yahoo! Sports' NFL insider Charles Robinson had reported that the Browns weren't sure if they wanted to keep Jackson or Haley. "Owner Jimmy Haslam was conflicted over blowing up another coach mid-season. Late last night he was leaning toward staying course. But Haslam spoke to GM John Dorsey, who said the Hue/Haley dynamic couldn’t continue. Some decision had to be made for the team," he reported. He added: "It’s clear GM John Dorsey played a big role for Haslam in resolving Hue vs. Haley. Dorsey didn’t want lingering toll on roster with the malaise of an internal coaching fight. Now Dorsey will have months to vet the next hire, with Mayfield development in mind."

The Browns might not be very good this season, but at least they're interesting.

Stay tuned.
