Kitchens began the season as assistant head coach/running backs coach but was elevated to offensive coordinator when head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley were fired at midseason.

He has already interviewed with the Cincinnati Bengals for their opening at head coach and was reportedly in the mix to be the defensive coordinator under new head coach Adam Gase's staff with the New York Jets.

Kitchens and Williams kept their players focused and motivated following the mid-season coaching change and the Browns went 7-8-1 following an 0-16 season in 2017 under Jackson.

Fangio beat out Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak for the job on Wednesday, reinforcing the belief that Elway very much wants total control over getting this team's offense back on track.

In Chicago, Fangio made a similar impact on defense. And now the head coach has been given the whistle.

In 2017, Dina Lasloom triggered an online firestorm when she was stopped en route to Australia where she planned to seek asylum. Ms Alqunun later tweeted the video and wrote that her "Twitter account has changed the game against what he wished for me".

The 46-year-old Joseph was sacked by the Broncos last week after going 11-21 in two seasons. It's possible that this highly coveted defensive coordinator like Williams could restore the Washington defense to what it once was.

Elway, who turns 59 this summer, and Fangio, who turns 61 in August, will make up one of the oldest coach-GM duos in the National Football League in 2019.

'Tis the season to get hired!

A person familiar with the meeting says former Broncos coach Vance Joseph will interview to be defensive coordinator under new Browns coach Freddie Kitchens.

Gase replaces Todd Bowles, who was sacked after he went 24-40 in four seasons.
