Kitchens led the Browns' dramatic improvement offensively when he was promoted to interim offensive coordinator midway through the 2018 season.

Mayfield said he sensed that Kitchens would get the job based on the differences he made when he took over.

The Browns went 5-3 with Kitchens calling plays.
