Freddie Kitchens is quickly emerging as the favorite candidate to become the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns. Several major media outlets are reporting the Browns are zeroing in on the interim offensive coordinator.
On a local level, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland.com quotes a source as saying the Browns “seem to be closing in” on Kitchens. Cabot also reports several current Browns assistant coaches are prepared to stay in Cleveland under Kitchens.
This matches up with a report from NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, who also indicates Kitchens is “right in the mix”.
It’s still not official and nobody is willing to name the sources yet, but it sure seems like the media is being led to believe Kitchens will be the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns.
