New Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine turned down an opportunity for his team to appear on HBO's sports documentary series "Hard Knocks."

The Browns have been in the spotlight after drafting Johnny Manziel last month, although HBO reportedly asked to film the team in training camp before Cleveland took the quarterback with the 22nd pick in the 2014 draft.

"It was for the same reason we didn't feel super comfortable having a camera in the draft room," Pettine said, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "Let's get through the first time, let's get through the first year."
