BEREA, Ohio (AP) – As he searches for win No. 1, Browns coach Hue Jackson doesn’t have to worry about losing his job.

Sashi Brown, the team’s vice president of football operations, said Monday that Jackson’s job is safe for next season despite an 0-10 record. Brown said the team is committed to its rebuilding plan and believes continuity is the key to long-term success.

Brown praised Jackson for keeping his team playing hard despite the worst start in team history. Owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam have fired three coaches in four years, but Brown said the team feels Jackson is a coach “that can be successful here and lead us to a lot of victories and a lot of winning.”

Jackson appreciates the vote of confidence. He understands the external frustration with the Browns’ record, but feels the team is on the right path.
