The latest: Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens will be promoted to head coach. They're going to make the right call.

Williams was named interim head coach when Hue Jackson was let go from the team in October.

Carrying more than a decade of experience in the NFL, Kitchens started as a tight ends coach with the Cowboys in 2006 under Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells, who has been an advisor to Browns owner Jimmy Haslam. "They know how we played at the end of the season, especially offensively", said Mayfield following the Browns' Week 17 loss against the Ravens regarding the coaching search. You'll certainly be getting multiple coaching offers now.

Chelsea are unwilling to let him leave Stamford Bridge unless they can secure a replacement themselves during the January window. The Blues booked their place in the FA Cup fourth round thanks to their 2-0 home win against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Per the report, several of the team's current assistants from the previous regime have already been asked to remain with the team.

After starting the season at 2-5-1, the Browns finished their year at 5-3 following the coaching change, matching their best win total in a decade.

Kitchens, who had his interview Monday, was one of seven candidates in the first round of interviews. The interim head coach, Gregg Williams, meanwhile, lost out on both the top job and his defensive coordinator job, being fired Wednesday, according to ESPN. Stefanski was the only known candidate to receive a second interview, which came on Tuesday January 8.
