Chad Johnson was in Cleveland working with the Browns wide receivers last week, and he did a great job. He said he was eager to learn to be a coach and wanted to come up there and help out the young Browns players. Well Ocho is no longer in Cleveland, and Hue Jackson made sure he talked about the situation with the media, giving Chad props on helping him as well as being a good Father.
“I think you guys know Chad,” Jackson said. “Chad is like my son, as you guys all know. Probably, I didn’t do a good enough job of explaining why he was here. He came as a guest. Chad was not in the minority coaching program. He came as a guest. I hope we all understand he was just going to be here for a period of time. He was never hired. I’ve heard people say he was hired and all that. He was never hired. He’s somebody who I know very well who I trust. I have a lot of respect for and he has knowledge. He was able to pass a little bit of that along to our players, but he also has some responsibilities, too. He has some kids. His daughter is a tremendous track athlete. He’s always there to cheer her on, and Chad is always the person that’s always able to be around me because I know him. At the same time, he was here to see what we did and if he could help our young guys just for a few days. I knew he would be out. I think he’s learning about pro football and what it is and the toll it takes on just yourself as person and families and all that. It was good for him to experience while the time he was here.”
