Browns make smart decision with hire of Freddie Kitchens

Report: ‘Signs Pointing’ To Browns Hiring This Coach

The vibe sounds like the Browns will have their new head coach sooner than later - stay tuned. He took over the Browns offense when coordinator Todd Haley was sacked an hour after coach Hue Jackson's dismissal on October 29 and Kitchens quickly showed he had coaching chops.

Kitchens was one of several candidates to interview for the job, and in recent days it became clear that he was an inner-circle candidate along with Vikings interim offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski.

By now Freddie Kitchens is a familiar name to Browns fans because of how well the team and Baker Mayfield played when he took over the offense.

The Browns are moving quickly through the interviews for head coaches, and today a report from Ian Rapaport of NFL Network says "to his understandings" that it's down to two, one of which will eventually lead the Browns into the future.

Under Kitchens, who took over after the firing of former coordinator Todd Haley, Cleveland was reinvigorated.

Due to their overlapping time in Arizona, connection to Kitchens, and experience in the NFL, Davis, and Austin could be potential suitors for the defensive coordinator job in Cleveland. Given his inexperience, a rise from graduate assistant to National Football League offensive coordinator in the span of two years is an awfully risky chance to take.

Baker Mayfield pre-Freddie Kitchens as his OC: 130-of-223 (56.5%), 1,471 yards, 8 TD, 6 INT. He also had a big hand in turning the running back role over to Nick Chubb who finished the season tenth in total rushing yards despite only starting nine games for the team.

Kitchens becomes the Browns' ninth permanent coach since 2000. They went 5-3 down the stretch under interim head coach Gregg Williams. The rookie quarterback and Kitchens did great things together over the past year.
