Cleveland Browns make it official with Freddie Kitchens

Reports: Mike Priefer departs as Vikings' special teams coordinator, will join Browns

Priefer Won’t Return As Vikings Special Teams Coach; Heading To Browns

It's an honor to be named the head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

Kitchens and Mayfield connected on a personal level, two former college quarterbacks who bonded over a shared passion and senses of humor. He puts trusts in us as players. Compare that to a 1-4 mark while completing 58.3 percent of his passes for 1,471 yards with 8 touchdowns, 6 interceptions and being sacked 20 times in his first 6 games. "I think he's the right guy to lead this team", Kirksey said.

The Browns relied on a large contingent to handle their latest coaching search, a group comprised of ownership/family, football operations and analytics, with that final department playing no small role in the decision to decide between rookie play callers Freddie Kitchens and Kevin Stefanski, sources said.

"Freddie really did a great job of working with the offensive players the last half of the year", Pro Bowl left guard Joel Bitonio said.

Kitchens will be introduced as head coach Monday at a noon press conference inside the 7UP City Club at FirstEnergy Stadium. "He's a passionate guy and he gets it".

Under Wilks and defensive coordinator Al Holcomb, the Cardinals had the worst rushing defense per game (154.9), which negated any good things they did by allowing the fourth-fewest passing yards per game (203.9).

The two reporters, who were not present at the time of the decision, insisted that they were allegedly victims of a police set-up. Explaining his verdict, Judge Aung Naing said the reporters had behaved in a way that showed they meant to harm the country.

Under Zimmer, the Vikings have had four different kickers and each of them have found one way or another to come up short when they're needed the most.

"I'm excited about the opportunity that he has", receiver Jarvis Landry said.

The news comes as a bit of a surprise since we reported last week that Minnesota was attempting to bring back Priefer for next season. "We saw firsthand what Freddie is able to do".

Full details of the Browns' 2019 schedule will be released in the spring.

It'll be on Kitchens and his players to make it happen.
