Browns hiring OC Freddie Kitchens as head coach

Browns huddle in search for coach Kitchens seen as favorite

The Cleveland Browns have identified in-house candidate Freddie Kitchens and Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as finalists for their head coaching job, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Kitchens served as the Browns' offensive coordinator from Week 8 on this past season, and oversaw improvement in the team's offense, sparked by increased reliance on Baker Mayfield and Nick Chubb. Kitchens began the year as a running backs coach for the Browns, and has been coaching in the National Football League as an assistant since 2006.

Mayfield completed 68.4 percent of his passes in his final eight games, tossing 18 touchdowns and making the Browns a fun offense in the process.

The Cleveland Browns have seemingly found their guy at the head coaching position.

Kitchens will take over as Cleveland's head coach for the upcoming season. While building game plans, he empowered his players by asking them what plays they were most comfortable running. He had suffered an aortic dissection caused by an aneurysm in his heart, and had he not been on the practice field when it happened where the team's medical staff could get him the help he needed in time, he might have bled to death.

After starting the season at 2-5-1, the Browns finished their year at 5-3 following the coaching change, matching their best win total in a decade.

"Definitely. No doubt", he said. "You have a resume that you check off the list and everything?"

This left me to question, who could Kitchens possibly be thinking about to hire as his coordinators in Cleveland?

Kitchens is the fourth coach hired by the Haslams since they bought the team in 2012. "I love the town of Cleveland". I am humbled to have worked for such a storied franchise and will always love the city of Cleveland, this city deserves a victor!
