Should the Browns have hired Gregg Williams to be head coach?

Eight games into the season, Gregg Williams was promoted to interim head coach after Hue Jackson was fired by the Cleveland Browns. Even after going 5-3 to finish the season, the organization went with Freddie Kitchens instead, but many are clamoring for him to be promoted again to full-time head coach. Others remember the Bountygate scandal while Williams was at New Orleans and feel he should have never been considered because of it. What do you think? 🏈

The Browns have been some questionable personnel decisions in the past. They should have hired Williams to reverse that trend.

Gregg Williams finished the season with a winning record as interim head coach and had the team playing good football as the season closed. He built a great working relationship with Baker Mayfield and it showed on the field. The team should have kept the win train moving and hired Williams for the head coaching slot.

Williams was a great short-term option for a maligned franchise looking to turn things around. As a long-term fit though, there are better options for sustained success.

While the team is playing well, Williams-coached teams have historically been bad. At his last full-time head coaching job with the Buffalo Bills, Williams finished with a 17-31 record in three seasons. His loud coaching style would not have played well over an entire season and players would have tuned him out. Plus there's the stink of Bountygate, where he paid players to hurt opponents on the field, that hung over his candidacy.

Cleveland was right to go another direction for their head coach.
