Browns general manager John Dorsey referred back to Jimmy Haslam’s declaration that Hue Jackson will back in 2018 and beyond when asked about on Tuesday, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

“Ownership has already spoken on that question,” Dorsey told 92.3 The Fan’s Bull and Fox, a radio partner of the Browns.

Press on what he’d do it if was his choice, Dorsey repeated, “Well, I think ownership has already spoken on that question.”

Several reports have surfaced that Dorsey might advise the Haslams to hire a new coach after the season, including one on profootballtalk.com, and one by Jason LaCanfora on CBS Sports.

When asked if he has a short list just in case, Dorsey said, “That’s one of those questions that’s speculation.”

He made it clear that he’s working well with Jackson and eager to proceed, despite the fact Jackson is 1-29 in his two seasons — the worst start for a coach in NFL history. Like the Haslams, Dorsey believes the talent deficit is to blame for the 0-14 record.

“Hue and I have a really good relationship,” he said. “First off, I think ownership has said that Hue would be back. With that, I’m excited to work with him here. I’ve been really impressed with how Hue messages to the players. I’ve always thought that head coaches should be leader of men, and when I watch Hue talk to the team and how hard guys play for him, that’s exciting.”
