CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns will introduce head coach Kevin Stefanski as the 18th full-time head coach in the team's history.
The press conference is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Watch it live below:
Stefanski replaced Kitchens, who was fired after just one season following the team's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Dec. 29.
“It's very exciting obviously for me and my family,” Stefanski said. “We're really looking forward to moving out here and getting situated in Cleveland and the adventure of it all. From my professional level, I just could not be more eager to get to work with this group. I think we have some really good players here. I think we have some outstanding people in this building. I know we have to add a GM and add some more pieces to this puzzle. I think the eager part for me is to get to work, buckle down and start to put together a program. Before you know it, the players are back in the building and we're going to be putting a system together offensively, defensively, etc. I think that's the fun part, when these guys get back in this building.”
Team owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam said during their search for a head coach they were looking for a smart, strong leader with good football acumen who is a continuous learner and works well within the organization.
