Hue Jackson's tenure in Cleveland has come to an end.
The Browns on Monday fired their head coach after another disappointing start to the season.
Offensive coordinator Todd Haley has also been relieved of his duties.
Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will serve as the Browns' interim coach, with Freddie Kitchens promoted to offensive coordinator.
"We greatly appreciate Hue's commitment to the Cleveland Browns organization over the last two and a half years," Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam said in a statement.
"We understand how critical this time period is in the development of our football team, individually and collectively, and believed it was in the organisation's best interest to make the move at this time, in order to maximise our opportunities the rest of this season. We certainly only wish Hue, Michelle, and his family the best moving forward."
The firings come after reports of a power struggle for control of the offense between Jackson and Haley that the organisation feared rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield was being dragged into.
A Yahoo report noted Haslam "was leaning toward staying course" with the two coaches but general manager John Dorsey insisted the "dynamic couldn't continue."
Jackson has been at the helm since 2016 but sealed his fate with a 33-18 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday as the team dropped to 2-5-1 on the season. He was 3-36-1 in his two-plus seasons as head coach, the Browns infamously going 0-16 last year.
Haley joined the Browns in January after spending the previous six seasons in Pittsburgh.
The Browns host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
