The team spoke to Kitchens on Monday in Berea. The 30th-ranked offense by DVOA upon Jackson and Haley's exit, the Browns eventually finished the season ranked 17th. What's not as well-known is pretty much anything else about the Browns' new head coach, who started the season in relative obscurity as an assistant under Hue Jackson.
The vibe sounds like the Browns will have their new head coach sooner than later - stay tuned. The Browns also went up from 20 to 12 in rushing efficiency and 29 to second overall offensively, but the main reason Kitchens is now given the keys to the entire team is his relationship with Mayfield, and how important that is to the future of the Browns. You'll certainly be getting multiple coaching offers now. Kitchens, who was a three-year starting quarterback at Alabama, wasn't afraid to be creative as he used wide receiver Jarvis Landry on running plays and to throw passes, and he got major production from rookie running back Nick Chubb, left tackle Greg Robinson and receiver Breshad Perriman - three players under-utilized by Jackson and Haley.
In the half-season with Kitchens calling the shots, Mayfield tossed 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions, while his quarterback ranking improved 30 points to an impressive 106.2.

The White House moved to pre-empt the Democrats, telling reporters Monday that tax refunds would be paid despite the shutdown. On Tuesday, Trump underscored cases of Americans killed allegedly by illegal immigrants, including California police Cpl.
"Definitely. No doubt", he said. Cleveland has been a desert for stability at the head coach and quarterback positions over the last two decades, but with one draft pick in 2018 and one coaching hire in 2019, that all may change.
The barrel-chested Kitchens became a fan favorite in a city that loves underdogs. They (Dorsey) know me well enough.
Kitchens is the fourth coach hired by the Haslams since they bought the team in 2012.
