Cleveland Browns: Freddie Kitchens potential coordinators

Cleveland Browns: Freddie Kitchens potential coordinators

Under Kitchens, who took over after the firing of former coordinator Todd Haley, Cleveland was reinvigorated.

Baker Mayfield pre-Freddie Kitchens as his OC: 130-of-223 (56.5%), 1,471 yards, 8 TD, 6 INT. With Kitchens serving as the interim offensive coordinator after Todd Haley was sacked, the Browns went 5-3 under the duo, and Baker Mayfield rapidly became one of the most productive quarterbacks in the league.

Under his leadership, Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft, threw 19 of his National Football League rookie record 27 touchdown passes while erasing any doubt that he could be the coveted franchise quarterback that has eluded the Browns for decades.

It was not only Kitchen's relationship with Mayfield that got him the gig.

All that said, this was not a clear-cut choice as it may have seemed.

The most interesting name is Ryan Lindley, who not only is connected to Kitchens through this Browns job, but he was also a quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals from 2012-2014 while Kitchens was on staff. McCarthy has obvious ties to the Cleveland front office, most-notably general manager John Dorsey, vice president of player personnel Alonzo Highsmith and assistant general manager Eliot Wolf. Williams took over as the head coach for Jackson and was in charge of a defense that looked to be gaining momentum as the season progressed.

The Cleveland Browns have parted ways with interim head coach Gregg Williams, our P.J. Ziegler confirmed on Wednesday.

Ultimately the two settled on Kitchens.

Kitchens himself was a quarterback at Alabama in the early-to-mid 1990s, and at the time of his departure he ranked fourth in the school's history in in passing yards. This was a solid hire from an organization that was laughed at in the past for some of their coaching decisions.
