Freddie Kitchens no longer is with the Cleveland Browns, after being released on Sunday night. After losing the final game of the season 33-23 against the lowly Cincinnati Bengals, the Browns have chosen to move on and are now in the hunt for a new coach.
There had been rumors for a couple of weeks now stating that Kitchens’ job was on the line, with obvious tension between the players and the coaching staff on the sidelines during games. The Browns, who went 6-10 this season, continue with their coaching carousel, not having a coach with a record over .500 since 1988.
Kitchens believed that he had the support of the organisation, however he told Ian Rapoport that he seemingly did not. This will see Kitchens enter the market as a possible coach, with the likes of Carolina and New York potentially enquiring about his availability moving forward.
