Before Kitchens took over the offense, the Browns ranked 29 in Football Outsiders' opponent-adjusted passing metrics.

Baker Mayfield pre-Freddie Kitchens as his OC: 130-of-223 (56.5%), 1,471 yards, 8 TD, 6 INT. They (Dorsey) know me well enough. I'm not going to get involved.

According to ESPN's Field Yates, in the first eight games without Kitchens as OC, Mayfield was 130-of-223 (56.5%) for 1,471 yards, eight touchdowns and six interceptions.

Per the report, several of the team's current assistants from the previous regime have already been asked to remain with the team.

On Wednesday, it was announced that Freddie Kitchens, who was promoted from running backs coach to offensive coordinator during the 2018 season, would now have the franchise in his hands as the newest head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

Kitchens becomes the Browns' ninth permanent coach since 2000.

Some names to consider that are now on the Browns offensive staff that could appear as the offensive coordinator include senior offensive assistant Al Saunders, wide receivers coach Adam Henry, and running backs coach Ryan Lindley; it has been announced that quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese will not return under Kitchens, eliminating him from the conversation. Jones is a Bruce Arians disciple. Once it became clear that Riley wasn't leaving the Sooners, promoting their offensive coordinator must have seemed like the best option. 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. Stefanski was the only known candidate to receive a second interview, which came on Tuesday January 8. After doing some research (really just looking up different people that Kitchens has coached with), a few names stuck out that could rise to the top of the list of potential contenders to lead under Kitchens.
