Hue Jackson finally followed through and took his dip for the Browns’ sunken season.

Cleveland’s coach jumped into Lake Erie on Friday, fulfilling the promise he made last year as the Browns were stumbling to a 0-16 record. Jackson’s pledge came on the heels of the Browns going 1-15 in his first season with the club.

Jackson said he’s learned to “shut my mouth a little bit more.”

Jackson wasn't alone when he took his plunge into the chilly waters as over 100 team employees joined him to raise money for his foundation. He donated $100 for every employee who took part, and owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam matched the contributions to support Jackson’s foundation, which raises awareness to fight human trafficking in Northeast Ohio.

In all, $30,000 was raised for the foundation.

Beyond making good on his word, Jackson’s hopes the event brought a “cleansing” for the Browns.
