On Sunday, the Cleveland Cavaliers fired head coach Tyronn Lue.
A day later, the Cleveland Browns followed suit, firing head coach Hue Jackson, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Jackson was in his third season with the Browns and actually has more wins this season (2) than either of the previous two (1 and 0, respectively). But it still wasn't enough for him to keep his job.
After beating Baltimore in Week 5, the Browns have lost their last three games to the Chargers, Bucs and Steelers.
According to Schefter, Jackson's contract ran through 2019.
Hue Jackson had this and next year remaining on his contract. So the Browns will be contractually obligated to him through 2019 season. But Cleveland is now back in the HC market.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 29, 2018
The Browns had the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft the last two years. In 2017, they took Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett and this year, they took Oklahoma quarterback Bake Mayfield. At 2-5-1, the Browns currently have the sixth worst record in the NFL.
Jackson's only other NFL head coaching experience came in 2011 with the Raiders when he guided the Silver and Black to an 8-8 record.
Somebody please check on Terry Francona...
