Freddie Kitchens will be named the Cleveland Browns’ head coach later today, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
The Cleveland opening was viewed as the best in the NFL. After years of top draft picks, the Browns have stockpiled an arsenal of young talent, led by quarterback Baker Mayfield and defensive end Myles Garrett.
Coming of a historic 0-16 campaign in 2017, the Browns were one of the most improved teams in the NFL this season, rocketing forward to 7-8-1, with wins in five of their final seven games.

This will be Kitchens’ first head coaching job at any level. An Alabama graduate, as the running backs and tight ends coach at Glenville State, then climbed the ladder at LSU, North Texas and Mississippi State before jumping into the League with the Dallas Cowboys in 2006. He was in the Arizona Cardinals’ organization from 2007-17 before joining the Browns ahead of this season.
