Freddie Kitchens will not get a second season in charge of the Cleveland Browns.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday night the Browns have fired Kitchens following the season-ending 33-23 loss to the two-win Cincinnati Bengals cementing their 6-10 campaign, per the coach.
The Browns later confirmed the move.
After firing Kitchens, Cleveland will hire its ninth different head coach since 2000. Kitchens is the second head coach in Browns history to be fired after one season (Rob Chudzinski, 2013). The story added Kitchens looked in over his head much of the 2019 season.
