NEW YORK — Less than two weeks after being fired by the Cleveland Browns, former head coach Freddie Kitchens might be working his way into another NFL job, according to a report from ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.

According to Raanan, Joe Judge, the new head coach of the New York Giants, is expected to speak with Kitchens regarding a spot on the team’s offensive staff.

Kitchens and Judge have a history, working together at Mississippi State in 2005. Judge was a graduate assistant while Kitchens was a running backs coach.

It is unclear what his role with the Giants would be, or if he’ll be hired, but it isn’t surprising he’s getting another shot in an offensive role, considering that's what got him the head coaching job in Cleveland.

Under Kitchens in 2018, the Browns’ offense improved, 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. If Kitchens can focus solely on the offense, the Giants could see major success with him on the staff.
