With the move to hire Freddie Kitchens as the new head coach, the Cleveland Browns have informed interim head coach Gregg Williams his services are no longer needed. Per Dan Graziano and Pat McManamon of ESPN, Williams is no longer with the Browns.
Williams went 5-3 as the interim head coach following Hue Jackson’s dismissal. His Browns were organized, passionate and exciting. He was promoted from defensive coordinator.
The veteran defensive coach did interview for the head coach position, but the organization has opted to move on from Williams. His defense ranked 21st in scoring and 30th in yards allowed in 2018, his second season in Cleveland.
