CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns coach Mike Pettine says he has not yet spoken with owner Jimmy Haslam about his future.
Pettine is just 3-17 in his past 20 games with Cleveland. Amid uncertainty, he said Monday that he’s solely focused on getting his team ready to play the season finale against Pittsburgh. Pettine’s second year has been marked by losses, injuries and the development of quarterback Johnny Manziel, who rushed for 108 yards in Sunday’s loss at Kansas City.
While Manziel has shown progress, there remains some concern about his decision-making off the field. Pettine said he is aware of a new video of Manziel that surfaced on social media over the weekend.
Pettine said he expects to have a discussion about it with Manziel, who lost his starting job last month for defying his coaches and partying during Cleveland’s bye week.
