Browns pass on Colts' Matt Eberflus as new head coach

Earlier today, after news broke that the Browns were hiring Freddie Kitchens to take over the head coaching job full-time, Les Levine, who was filling in as a host on 92.3 The Fan's Baskin and Phelps, explained that the Browns meant to hire ex-Packer's head coach Mike McCarthy with the stipulation that he keep Kitchens on his staff as offensive coordinator.

For one season (2006), worked as the tight ends coach for the Dallas Cowboys under head coach Bill Parcells. ESPN's Chris Mortensen had the news first.

Under Kitchens, who took over after the firing of former coordinator Todd Haley, Cleveland was reinvigorated. Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Case Keenum were all next in a line of quarterbacks not named Manning that Elway failed to win with, and the inability to get the position right factored into Vance Joseph's firing after just two years as head coach.

Rookie Baker Mayfield and the offense seemed to respond to Kitchens: in the first eight games of the season, Cleveland averaged 20.6 points per game; over the final eight, with Kitchens in charge, that number was 23.7.

While the Colts appear safe for now, other teams will likely be interested in bringing Eberflus in for interviews if his defense continues to play the way it did in 2018.

Kitchens will be the 11th head coach - counting interim coaches - since the Browns returned to Cleveland in 1999.

Stefanski was in Cleveland on Tuesday for a second interview.
