Freddie Kitchens has 'good chance' of being next Browns coach

The Browns didn't have to go far to find their new coach. That Kitchens was able to implement all of this shows his acumen as a teacher, and the respect he had in the building. Under the new leadership, the Browns went 5-3 to finish the season, while the offense and Baker Mayfield took off.

The name that is most commonly next to Kitchens on an offensive staff is Todd Haley, and there is no way that John Dorsey and Company are allowing within 500 miles of Berea, OH.

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

Kitchens will get the chance. In eight games under Kitchens, Mayfield completed 68.4 percent of his passes for 2,254 yards, 19 touchdowns, and eight interceptions.

On Wednesday, Kitchens took another leap, this time to head coach.

There is also no good guess at who could serve as special teams coordinator under Kitchens either.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Browns will officially announce Kitchens as their head coach later today.

He revamped the offensive scheme, using multiple formations and tweaking the game plan to include calls that he knew his players were comfortable running. The 29-year-old does, however, only have two years of coaching experience, 2017 as a graduate assistant with San Diego State University, and this season with the Browns.

As the team's success grew, Kitchens never campaigned to be Cleveland's coach but leading a team was always a goal.

Vacant NFL head coaching positions across the league are quickly filling up.

The hires mean that only the Jets, Dolphins and Bengals remain in the hunt for their next head coach. "You have a resume that you check off the list and everything?"

"I like it here and I like it here a lot, and everybody around here knows that I like it here", Kitchens said last month. "I love the town of Cleveland".
