— The Browns reportedly are set to announce Freddie Kitchens as their new head coach.
Kitchens served as the team’s offensive coordinator over the final eight games of the season. He built a strong rapport with rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, who excelled under Kitchens.
Here’s how social media reacted to the news:

Kind of disappointed that I see Freddie Kitchens trending and it’s not a new cooking show— Matt Steltzer (@Msteltzer) January 9, 2019
Time will tell, but I love the Freddie Kitchens hire. He’s direct, has a refreshing perspective and seems to be a perfect culture fit for this team, and this city at this time. Oh, and go look at Baker’s #’s with him as OC. You won’t find better for a rookie in NFL history.— Dominic Moscato (@DominicMoscato) January 9, 2019

Everyone close to or around this seems to think the Browns made the right decision
