Browns Hiring OC Freddie Kitchens As Head Coach, Broncos Hiring Fangio

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

The job has been open since late October, when Kitchens was first made play-caller and the Browns were limping along.

Now, we all wait to see what Kitchens can do with Mayfield once he's in complete control of the team. Kitchens was a condition of employment for Browns candidates, or at least McCarthy, and they may have dodged a bullet. They will go into the 2019 season with great expectations based on what they achieved in the second half of the 2018 campaign. "Cleveland and I get along well". But the real difference for the Browns was what Kitchens was able to do for rookie Baker Mayfield after offensive coordinator Todd Haley was shelved the same day Jackson was.

Last week, multiple outlets reported that the Browns blocked several National Football League teams from interviewing Kitchens for their offensive coordinator positions so they could keep him, either as head coach or offensive coordinator.

The Cleveland Browns have been a notoriously unfortunate spot for many head coaches in recent years, which has led to countless firings. Austin since has been the defensive coordinator for the University of Florida Gators for one season under Urban Meyer, the Detriot Lions for three years from 2014-2017 under Jim Caldwell, and the Cincinnati Bengals for less than a year this season before being relieved from his duties by Marvin Lewis.

Olivia Colman, who plays Queen Anne in offbeat royal romp The Favourite , and Bale won as expected in the comedy acting races. While collecting his Breakthrough Performance award at the ceremony, he said: "Thank you, Lucy Boynton ".


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.

The report adds that several assistant coaches already have been asked to stay aboard, a sign that the Browns will stay inside the organization for the hire.

It is unclear when the hiring of Kitchens will be announced by the team. One name that could return is special teams coordinator Amos Jones, who spent time with Kitchens in Arizona on the Cardinals.

Kitchens was the last candidate to interview for the head coaching vacancy, which came Monday, January 7.
