'Good chance' Kitchens will be Browns' head coach

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

The 5-minute radio segment spearheaded by Jason Smith stresses the importance of attracting "established names like Mike McCarthy" to the Brown's once-vacant head coaching position.

The Browns had gone 1-31 in the previous two seasons under Jackson.

Kitchens is the fourth coach hired by the Haslams since they bought the team in 2012.

The 44-year-old Kitchens, who had a dazzling eight-week run as the team's interim offensive coordinator, is finalizing a contract to become Cleveland's ninth coach since the franchise's 1999 rebirth, a person familiar with the decision told the Associated Press on Wednesday.

It is unclear when the hiring of Kitchens will be announced by the team. 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. They're going to make the right call.

Mayfield completed 68.4 percent of his passes in his final eight games, tossing 18 touchdowns and making the Browns a fun offense in the process. I am humbled to have worked for such a storied franchise and will always love the city of Cleveland, this city deserves a victor! The 30th-ranked offense by DVOA upon Jackson and Haley's exit, the Browns eventually finished the season ranked 17th.

Interim head coach and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was relieved of his duties, according to ESPN.

New York, though, could be focused on Baylor head coach Matt Rhule. 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.

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

An official announcement from the Browns announcing Kitchens is expected later this afternoon.
