Browns Hue Jackson Becomes 1st Coach To Sign With Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports
The Roc is definitely in the building.
Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson signed with Jay Z’s agency Roc Nation Sports, becoming the first coaching client of the four-year-old firm. Jackson follows his agent, John Thornton, to Roc Nation, where he went a year ago after leaving Octagon.
Roc Nation has signed other top names such as Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette just ahead of the 2017 Draft, Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant , Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, and Rams running back Todd Gurley.
As far as the Browns go, Jackson went 1-15 coaching the team last year as he tries to get this franchise out of a funk. The Browns haven’t seen a winning record since 2007, and a playoff appearance since 2002.
