Browns QB Baker Mayfield says he likes ‘everything’ about head coach Gregg Williams
Four games after the firing of head coach Hue Jackson, the Cleveland Browns are 3-1 and looking like a team reinvigorated with interim coach Gregg Williams at the helm. Cleveland may not be playoff bound and is still trying to figure things out, but this team has shown signs of promise with rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield under center and defensive end Myles Garrett leading the defense.
At this point, there’s no telling what the Browns brass will do at the head coaching position once the 2018 campaign is over for the struggling franchise. So far, it appears Mayfield is all in on having Williams run the show, via Steve Doerschuk of CantonRep.com.
“Everything. What you see is what you get. No smoke and mirrors. It’s out on the line, very open. On offense, we’re just doing what we do. He’s trusted Freddie, and that, I think, is very important.”
Obviously, with Mayfield being the player the team wants to build around for the future, the endorsement from the Browns star is a good sign for Williams and his future with the team.
Williams is also enjoying his time as a head coach in Cleveland. The former defensive coordinator said the following about his experience thus far since the firing of Jackson, via Doerschuk.
“I really do love everything that I do in my job. I have had a lot of good experiences. It is fun to be involved with these young guys here, seeing the flash in their eyes, getting a chance to believe in themselves.”
In the final three weeks of the season, the Browns will face the Denver Broncos, Cincinnati Bengals, and Baltimore Ravens. The outcome of this three games could very well dictate Williams’ future in Cleveland.
