The team announced that special teams coordinator Mike Priefer will serve as the acting head coach against the Steelers in the playoffs, and Cleveland’s facility has closed down. You can read the full statement from the team below.

The Cleveland Browns finally making the playoffs and then losing their head coach to coronavirus is the most 2020 storyline ever.

Obviously, we’re all pulling for everyone to bounce back as quickly as possible. The last thing we need is for more coronavirus problems.

Having said that, this is honestly brutal for the Browns. For the first time in nearly two decades, they made the playoffs!

They’re finally relevant and on the road to glory. Then, the team’s head coach and multiple other people test positive for coronavirus.
