14 January 2020

"I just could not be more eager to get to work with this group".

3 - Different positions (QBs, RBs, TEs) Stefanski coached before taking over as the Vikings' full-time offensive coordinator.

"We are thrilled to welcome Kevin as the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns", Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam said in a statement released by the team Monday evening. First year head coach Freddie Kitchens, who was hired after half a season of coordinator experience, was in over his head leading a team with some big, young personalities.

A Cleveland Browns helmet lays in the end zone before the game against the Baltimore Ravens at FirstEnergy Stadium on September 21, 2014 in Cleveland, Ohio. I think we have some really good players here. I also think we want somebody who is a continuous learner and somebody who is trying to get better all the time. Kevin exemplifies these qualities and more.

"I know we have to add a GM and add some more pieces to this puzzle".

Stefanski is in the early stages of assembling his staff and he could bring some colleagues over from Minnesota to be his co-ordinators.

Stefanski is expected to retain specials teams co-ordinator Mike Priefer, who improved the team's punting, kicking and coverage units dramatically in one season. Now the Browns are at least considering another long-time Viking to be the next general manager. Phillips was recently let go by LA after three seasons as the team's DC.

The Browns have requested an interview with Vikings VP of player personnel and assistant GM George Paton, according to numerous reports.

Stefanski replaces Freddie Kitchens, who was sacked after the Browns endured a disappointing 6-10 season in his only campaign at the helm, with many having considered Cleveland postseason contenders at the start of the year.
