Remember the viral Hard Knocks clip of Hue Jackson arguing with Todd Haley over players practicing? The whole thing actually started because of concern raised by new head coach Freddie Kitchens.#Brownspic.twitter.com/S0LicwlrHC

from running backs coach to offensive coordinator to head coach in the span of 10 weeks. Freddie Kitchens with a historic glow up

Such a cool story for Freddie Kitchens.

RB position coach to start the year. From what I can tell had never worked as an OC at any level. Maximized his opportunity and now head coach.

Under Todd Haley, the Browns ranked 29th in offensive DVOA. Under Freddie Kitchens, they ranked first.

THAT"s a resume bump.

@Browns hiring Freddie Kitchens is only a good decision if Bob Wylie stays on as the O-line coachpic.twitter.com/igLzZZO3TY

It's not just DVOA. With Freddie Kitchens as offensive coordinator, Cleveland's average gain went up by more than 2 yards per play!

Time will tell on Kitchens as HC, but I’m fascinated that in Kitchens and Eberflus we have two people that it appears were capable of doing a lot more than anyone had hired them to do for many years. I wonder how many other guys like this the league is overlooking

it's Freddie Kitchens time in Berea!

Lord, grant me the serenity to endure the inevitable forthcoming onslaught of lazy, culinary-based Kitchens/Baker headline puns.#Browns
