Chad Johnson left Browns camp'

after three days, says coaching is 'tough
But he's coming back.

Former NFL receiver Chad Johnson lobbied his way on Twitter to an unofficial NFL coaching gig with the Cleveland Browns. It appears that Johnson may have already called it quits.

Turns out that coaching isn’t easy.

According to’s Mary Kay Cabot, Johnson left camp on Monday to take care of some business. Head coach Hue Jax revealed that Johnson seemed surprised at how difficult coaching was — even from an unofficial capacity. Cleveland started its training camp on Friday.

Jax is unsure if Johnson will return to the team.

Johnson was at camp to informally work with a group of draft picks. He tweeted on Saturday that coaching brings the best 14-hour work days.

UPDATE: Chad Johnson says that he will be returning on Tuesday.

He said via

“You really thought I was leaving? This is the funny thing. Hue Jackson allowed me to come in as an intern. I never told Hue I was leaving, so he’s stuck with me until they force me to leave. I’ll be here through January.”

Johnson said that he ran into a “small problem,” but will be back.
