Browns Coach Hue Jackson Finally Taking Plunge Into Lake Erie Next Month

Share on Nextdoor
Browns Head Coach Hue Jackson promised to jump into Lake Erie if his team failed to win more than one game last year. But following the abysmal 0-16 season, Jackson's jump's timeline has remained a secret.

Today, the Browns organization announced that the third-year coach plans to take the plunge into Lake Erie June 1. Naturally, he's waited until after winter to make good on his vow.

Unfortunately, only Browns employees are allowed to attend the event, and it is not open to the public. For every worker who leaps with him, Jackson says he'll donate $100 to the Hue Jackson Foundation, an organization started to fight human trafficking in Northeast Ohio.

“It's going to be a cleansing of the Cleveland Browns,” Jackson said in March at the NFL Combine. “That's what it will be."
