Things are about to get really interesting in Cleveland, and Baker Mayfield with a new head coach should be prime National Football League content.

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. She says signs are pointing to that outcomes.

Under the direction of Kitchens, rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield flourished, completing 68.4 percent of his passes with 19 touchdowns, eight interceptions and five sacks while leading the Browns to a 5-3 finish.

At this point, Kitchens, who revamped the team's offense in the season's second half, appears to be the front-runner. Ken Whisenhunt was the head coach for most of the years that Kitchens was in Arizona, and he would be considered for the job, except that he is now running a pretty successful offense in Los Angeles for the Chargers. "Cleveland and I get along well". 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.

Kitchens and Mayfield also formed a close bond, something none of the other candidates could claim when they sat in front of Dorsey and Haslam. 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.

After conducting interviews with seven candidates in seven days, general manager John Dorsey and members of the team's search committee, which includes owner Jimmy Haslam, were not expected to meet with anyone on Tuesday and could be evaluating their next move.

It's pretty obvious that the Browns greatly valued the presence of Kitchens within the Browns locker room.
