Todd Haley as the Browns Offensive Coordinator gives their offense and organization more creditability.
Browns offense took a big step forward when they hired Todd Haley to be Cleveland's new Offensive Coordinator. Haley who's 50, spent the past six seasons as the Steelers Offensive Coordinator. The Steelers ranked 8th in the NFL in overall Team offense.
Haley also has head coaching experience. From 2009-2011 he coached the Kansas City Chiefs going 19-26. In 2010, his Chiefs team finished first with a 10-6 record in the AFC West Conference.
Aside from knowing the Browns AFC North division well, the 2017 1st place Pittsburgh Steelers (13-3) had no problem scoring points (406) while Hue Jackson's Browns (0-16) scored the fewest points in the NFL with 234.
Haley is known to an aggressive, but successful coach who challenges his players as a means of motivation. It may be just what the winless Browns need. No doubt Haley's 23 years of NFL coaching experience will serve the Browns well.
It also gives Cleveland another interim head coaching option in the event Hue Jackson gets off to another long losing streak in 2018.
Haley joins Gregg Williams, Browns Defensive Coordinator as the second Browns coach with head coaching experience. Williams coached the Bills from 2001-2003 going 17-31.
Browns are stacked with key draft picks in the 2018 draft. Browns have the #1 overall pick for a second straight season as well as the 4th pick they acquired in last year's trade with the Texans who picked Deshawn Watson. Browns also have three 2nd round picks.
Former Chiefs GM John Dorsey, now Browns GM is expected to draft a QB possibly with the 1st pick as well as trade for or sign a free agent veteran QB. Alex Smith is a likely candidate they trade for. Or, Sam Bradford may be free agent QB they sign in addition to drafting a top prospect.
Draft expert Mel Kiper predicts Browns will select Wyoming's QB Josh Allen with the #1 pick while fellow draft guru Todd Mcshay believes Cleveland will select USC's QB Sam Darnold.
Browns fans should appreciate this major offensive move in the right direction by the hiring of Todd Haley who is a respected OC around the NFL. With just one win two season, Hue Jackson could use all the qualified help possible.
