Kitchens, 44, became offensive coordinator for the Browns in October when offensive coordinator Todd Haley and head coach Hue Jackson were fired. Kitchens quickly built a rapport with rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, who thrived under his new play-caller.
Mayfield passed for 3,725 yards, 27 touchdowns and 14 interceptions this season. Nineteen of those TDs came during the final eight games under Kitchens’ tutelage.
