Many Cleveland Browns fans enjoyed watching John Deflippo as their offensive coordinator, but it sounds like new head coach Hue Jackson will be looking past Flip. Today on Sirius XM Radio, Jackson said he does not plan on hiring an OC.
“Right now in my mind, I don’t really plan on having an offensive coordinator ‘cause I want to reserve that right to call plays,” Jackson said on a Sirius XM Radio appearance, via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.
“I think that’s something that’s gotten me this job. So if it’s something that you’re an expert at, I think you want to continue to work at that and keep that in your pocket so you can use it to help your team. Now if I get somebody I really trust who has that [expertise], then obviously I’m very willing to kind of give that away as we go, but it’s got to be somebody I really trust and admire.”
