Browns GM John Dorsey spoke highly of Kitchens' ability to improve the offense during his post-season press conference.

Most importantly, Kitchens helped to further Baker Mayfield's development. "Cleveland and I get along well".

In eight games under Kitchens, Mayfield threw 19 touchdown passes, 8 interceptions, and was sacked just five times, compared to 8/6/20 in the first eight games.

My understanding is that two finalists for the #Browns head coach job are Freddie Kitchens and Kevin Stefanski. According to FanSided's own Matt Verderame, the Browns were close to going all-in on former Packers coach Mike McCarthy. The 30th-ranked offense by DVOA upon Jackson and Haley's exit, the Browns eventually finished the season ranked 17th.

The Browns didn't have to go far to find their new coach.

Names such as Gregg Williams and, as previously mentioned, Zampese have already been dismissed from the team, and as the Kitchens era has begun, many fans patiently wait to see what his first move will be as the head coach in Cleveland. What's not as well-known is pretty much anything else about the Browns' new head coach, who started the season in relative obscurity as an assistant under Hue Jackson. "I always felt like I lived life every day like it could be your last, but what an incident like that makes you realize and thankful for are the friends that you have", Kitchens told the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram in November. Back when he was on Bruce Arians' staff in Arizona in 2013, he felt two pops in his chest, his vision blurred, and he went numb. He was promoted from defensive coordinator. Cleveland has been a desert for stability at the head coach and quarterback positions over the last two decades, but with one draft pick in 2018 and one coaching hire in 2019, that all may change.

Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Stefanski is headed back to Cleveland for a second interview.

Kitchens will be officially named this afternoon.
