Browns will reportedly name offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens their next head coach

Browns huddle in search for coach Kitchens seen as favorite

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

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.

The Cleveland Browns have been in the market for a new head coach longer than any other team.

Baker Mayfield with Freddie Kitchens as his OC: 180-of-263 (68.4%), 2,254 yards, 19 TD, 8 INT. In the last three games in Cleveland, Kitchens led the Browns offense to the second best passing offense and the 13th ranked rushing offense on a yards per game basis.

One likely reason that the Browns made a decision to keep Kitchens was because of his relationship with Baker Mayfield. They (Dorsey) know me well enough.

As first reported by ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Browns have hired Freddie Kitchens, the man who started the season as the team's running backs coach and ended it as a highly-regarded offensive coordinator, to replace Gregg Williams. 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.

Poland to shut down 13 escape rooms over safety flaws
Officials have said asphyxiation was the probable cause of the deaths, and a gas leak was the most likely cause of the blaze . The Escape Room game, which is popular in the United Kingdom , sees players deliberately locked inside a room or building.

It's hard to suss out how much of that was due to Kitchens and how much was due to (a) Mayfield coming into his own after reliving Tyrod Taylor in Week 3 and getting his first start in Week 4; and (b) the front office's decision to trade Carlos Hyde, which thrust Chubb into the lineup.

Kitchens, who had his interview Monday, was one of seven candidates in the first round of interviews.

This is significant because the Browns interviewed Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus on Sunday, the day following the Indy's 21-7 wild-card win in which the defense put on an impressive showing.
