UPDATED - Jan. 9th 12:23 pm ET: Browns Have Hired Freddie Kitchens To Be Their Next Head Coach
The Hue Jackson era in Cleveland was a disaster and it’s time for the Browns to start looking for a new head coach in 2019. The Browns fired Jackson after a 2-5-1 start to this season. Since taking over as the Browns head coach in 2016, Jackson had a record of 3-36-1, including an 0-16 season in 2017. Since the firing, the Browns are 5-3 under interim head coach Gregg Williams. So who are some of the top candidates for the Browns in their head coaching search?
Will the Browns look to pull former Ohio State Head Coach, Urban Meyer, out of retirement? Are highly-touted college coaches, like Iowa State’s Matt Campbell or Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley willing to make the jump from College Football to the NFL? Will the Browns look to poach offensive juggernauts like the Kansas City Chiefs’ Eric Bieniemy. Will Josh McDaniels finally move on from the New England Patriots after reversing his decision to take on the Indianapolis Colts’ job? With Baker Mayfield leading the offense to their first 7-win season since the Johnny Manziel era, will the Cleveland Browns look to amp up the defensive side of the ball with a hire in Brian Flores? After leading the Browns to 5 wins, following the Hue Jackson firing, will Gregg Williams remain at the helm? Will Bruce Arians return to the NFL ranks from retirement? Will the Browns ultimately find their leader in the well-respected Mike McCarthy, known for developing future Hall of Fame QBs and Super Bowl caliber teams.
