Browns pick coordinator Kitchens as next coach

Report Browns give 2nd head coach interview to Vikings OC Kevin Stefanski

This week, Ohio State announced that linebackers coach Bill Davis would be leaving the team to pursue opportunities in the National Football League after one season with the team. With the news of Kitchens being named the next head coach of the Browns, Stefanski a free agent for just one day, elected to return to the Vikings as their offensive coordinator, according to ESPN.

For the first time in a long time, the Cleveland Browns are trending upwards as they have seemingly found their quarterback of the future in Baker Mayfield, who nearly lead them to a winning season and a playoff spot.

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. He was then hired by Ken Whisenhunt to coach the same position with the Cardinals in 2007, eventually got promoted to quarterbacks coach in 2013 when Bruce Arians took over, moved to running backs coach in 2017, and joined the Browns for the 2018 season.

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

He was promoted to the Vikings OC spot from quarterbacks coach when John DeFilippo was sacked with three games to play in the season.

Kelly’ sex abuse documentary
The Hampton was quick to point out via Twitter that Aaliyah was only a small part of the story she is telling with this series. Kelly's arrest on charges of child pornography is the focus of the second chapter of the three-part docuseries Surviving R.

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.

One likely reason that the Browns made a decision to keep Kitchens was because of his relationship with Baker Mayfield.

Kitchens becomes the Browns' ninth permanent coach since 2000. The 30th-ranked offense by DVOA upon Jackson and Haley's exit, the Browns eventually finished the season ranked 17th.

NFL Films produced a short feature on Kitchens previous year, when he was with the Cardinals, calling him "The most selfless man in the NFL".

Also, Gregg Williams, who went 5-3 as Cleveland's interim coach and defensive coordinator this season, is no longer with the team, the person said.
