After pressuring the rookie Browns head coach on Twitter to give him a job , the former wide receiver fled home to Florida days after the team opened its training camp. As Jackson pointed out Monday, it appears Johnson isnt cut out for the coaching lifestyle. I think he found that this business is tough, Jackson, who was the wide receivers coach for the Bengals when Johnson was a star player there, said via ESPN . Theres a lot of hours that we keep, and I dont think Chad is used to that. While Johnson proudly tweeted Browns camp to be the best 14 hour work days ever, he left Saturday to attend to personal business. Johnson told Cleveland.com he wanted to break the news in person to his 12-year-olddaughter, Chaiel, that he wouldnt be able to watch her compete at the Junior Olympics because of his coaching obligations.

Thats something I needed to be able to tell my daughter face to face, not over the phone, not via text, and she has to understand that daddy has to work. Shes one of the fastest in the world, and it would kill her for me not to be there. Johnson vowed to return to training camp Tuesday. You really thought I was leaving? This is the funny thing.click to investigate

As most of you know, my father has been battling with two different types of cancer. He hasn’t been doing as well as we hoped, THEREFORE, I will not be traveling weekly with WWE any longer,” she continued before outlining her post WWE plans. “I will be looking to take on work closer to where I live so that I don’t have to be on the road weekly away from him. He truly needs me, and I need this time with him. I ask that you please continue prayers for my father and my family.” Garcia started with WWE in 1999 and has worked on and off with the sport entertainment giant for 15 years, announcing WWE Superstars as they entered the ring and singing the national anthem before every show. “It has been a magical 15-year career at WWE, and WWE Universe, I can’t thank you enough for all your love and support!
