After struggling through 3 seasons of Hue Jackson as head coach, the Browns have a new head man in Cleveland.
Offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens has been promoted to head coach, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
Freddie Kitchens will be named new Browns head coach later today, per sources.

Though many believed the team would give former interim coach Gregg Williams the job after a successful end to the season following Jackson’s firing, Kitchens beat out Kevin Stefanski for the job. His role in helping develop rookie QB Baker Mayfield likely put him over the top.
Williams will remain on staff and reclaim his duties as defensive coordinator.
