Browns head coach tells Hard Knocks “Hell No”

Ok, so he technically didn’t say “Hell No”, but he did reject an offer to be on Hard Knocks before the team drafted Johnny Football.

According to Tom Reed of the Cleveland Plain dealer Mike Pettine confirmed the Browns rejected an opportunity to be considered for the HBO Hard Knocks series.

Teams with first-year coaches have the right to decline.

“It was for the same reason we didn’t feel super comfortable having a camera in the draft room,” Pettine said. “Let’s get through the first time, let’s get through the first year.”

“There are positives and negatives to doing it,” said Pettine, who was part of a Hard Knocks season with the Jets. “It’s not something I would say we’d never do, partly because the league can make us do it.”

Pettine said he’s not sure if HBO made a second request for the upcoming training camp, but I’m sure with Johnny Manziel on the roster HBO will be pulling all punches to land the Browns sooner rather than later.
