It looks like the Browns are set to name interim offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens as their new head coach.
He replaces interim head coach Gregg Williams, who was also a candidate for the top job. Williams finished the season with a 5-3 record that saw the Browns stay in playoff contention until week 16.
Freddie Kitchens will be named new Browns head coach later today, per sources.

Kitchens replaced Todd Haley midway through the season. Rookie QB Baker Mayfield flourished under the tutelage of Kitchens, throwing 19 of his 27 touchdowns after the change at offensive coordinator.
Kitchens, 44, has never been a head coach at any level. He has coached in the NFL since the 2006 season, bouncing between coaching Quarterbacks, Running Backs, and Tight Ends with the Cowboys, Cardinals, and Browns.
