Under Kitchens, the Browns’ offense made a massive turnaround, averaging more than 395 yards per game, executing almost perfectly in the red zone and finishing with a 5-3 record over the final eight games.
Kitchens has held coaching positions with the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals in addition to the Browns.
Kitchens is being well received as head coach already, especially by Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.
“It was great working with and learning from Freddie last year. He has such a creative mind. He creates mismatches and just put guys in position to take advantage of their opportunities. He puts trusts in us as players. He’s the same guy every day. I’m really excited about 2019 and the future of the Cleveland Browns,” Mayfield said in a press release.
