Mayfield completed 68.4 percent of his passes in his final eight games, tossing 18 touchdowns and making the Browns a fun offense in the process.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Browns will officially announce Kitchens as their head coach later today.

Kitchens became a fan favorite in Cleveland after the Browns' offense improved with him calling plays down the stretch of the season.

Williams was brought the Browns before the 2017 season, as part of former head coach Hue Jackson's staff. Jackson brought Williams on board as his defensive coordinator, and eventually, Williams was hired as interim head coach after Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley was sacked. The Browns even asked Stefanski who he would include on his coaching staff, should he get the job, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
