Johnny Manziel and Mike Pettine have had a tenuous relationship this season with his off-field incidents.
But Manziel would like the Cleveland Browns to retain Pettine in the offseason.
"Absolutely (I respect him),'' Manziel. "He's our head coach. I have a ton of respect for him and like I said earlier in the year when everything happened, whether I liked the situation or not and liked the outcome of what happened, I had a part in that too and I had to take responsibility and own up to that. It was on nobody else but me.''
