Hue Jackson says he was not paid to lose games as Browns coach

February 5, 2022

Former Browns coach Hue Jackson said Friday that he was not paid to lose games while with the franchise.

“No, I was never offered money like Brian (Flores) had mentioned,” Jackson said to CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “I think this is a totally different situation but has some similarities.”

Brian Flores, who was fired from the Dolphins in January, filed an explosive lawsuit seeking class action status on Tuesday against the NFL and three teams, alleging racial discrimination. In the suit, Flores also claims that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offered him a $100,000 bonus for each loss during the 2019 season, which Ross vehemently denies.
