Kitchens has agreed to become Cleveland's new coach, but he still hasn't finalized his contract. "I'm really excited about 2019 and the future of the Cleveland Browns".

Kitchens, who helped Mayfield turn his rookie season into a record-breaking one during an impressive eight-game stint as the Browns offensive co-ordinator, was named Cleveland's 17th full-time coach on Saturday, capping a remarkable personal rise up the coaching ranks.

Under Kitchens, the Browns' offense made a massive turnaround, averaging more than 395 yards per game, executing nearly perfectly in the red zone and finishing with a 5-3 record over the final eight games.

"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.

"I'm excited about the opportunity that he has", receiver Jarvis Landry said. "Our goal is to work extremely hard to earn the right to raise that Lombardi Trophy for our fans and this city".

"It was great working with and learning from Freddie past year. He has such a creative mind", quarterback Baker Mayfield said. He creates mismatches and just put guys in position to take advantage of their opportunities. He's the same guy every day.

General manager John Dorsey was the public face of the search, and the point-man for the process, but the Browns team of interviewers included more Haslam family members than football people brought in by Dorsey and much of the group was comprised of individuals who had never been a part of a successful coaching search in the past.
