Todd Haley thought he was going to be named the interim head coach for the Cleveland Browns when Hue Jackson was fired on Oct. 29.
Sam Rutigliano told 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland that Haley, who was hired less than 10 months ago, was shocked to also be fired by the Browns.
"He said to me, 'I had no idea. When I was going back into the office I thought possibly if they were going to let Hue Jackson go, that I would have the opportunity now to be the interim coach and then get the job eventually, and that's why I came here,'" Rutigliano claims. "And then it went the opposite direction."
After firing Jackson and Haley, the Browns named Gregg Williams their interim coach.
