The Browns are busy trying to surround Freddie Kitchens with a revamped coaching staff.
The team reached an agreement Wednesday to hire Kitchens as its head coach, a league source confirmed, after he caught fire as its offensive coordinator in the final eight games of the 2018 season.
The organization will announce the hire when Kitchens’ contract has been finalized.
In the meantime, the quest for Kitchens’ coordinators is underway.
Former Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph planned to travel to Northeast Ohio on Thursday to interview for the Browns’ defensive coordinator job, ESPN reported, and former Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano is another DC candidate who’s receiving interest from Kitchens, according to the Arizona Republic.
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken will interview with the Browns this weekend for their OC job, and former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter is scheduled to meet with the team, too, NFL Network reported.
