Gregg Williams Sends Emotional Message to Fans After the Browns Fired Him

Browns pass on Colts' Matt Eberflus as new head coach

While we continue to wait for the official announcement that Freddie Kitchens has been hired as the Browns' next head coach, Kitchens has begin the process of putting his staff together.

The coaching move relieved former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams from his duties as interim head coach and actually ended his tenure with the Browns as a whole.

The hires mean that only the Jets, Dolphins and Bengals remain in the hunt for their next head coach.

Kitchens has no previous head coaching experience, but his work with Cleveland's offense - most notably quarterback Baker Mayfield - in the season's second half vaulted him ahead of the other six candidates interviewed by the Browns, who were looking for the right coach to lead them following a stunning turnaround season. "You have a resume that you check off the list and everything?"

The 46-year-old Joseph was sacked by the Broncos last week after going 11-21 in two seasons.

Chuck Pagano is quickly becoming a popular name on the rumor circuit for the vacant Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator position. At 60 years old and after serving as a defensive coordinator in the league for 19 years, he will be the oldest first-time head coach roaming the sidelines when the 2019 season kicks off. In six of his past nine seasons as coordinator for the 49ers and Bears, Fangio has seen his defenses finish in the top 10 in both of those categories.

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