Following Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Cleveland Browns have fired first-year head coach Freddie Kitchens. Jimmy and Dee Haslam released the following statement:
"We thank Freddie for his hard work and commitment to this organization but did not see the success or opportunities for improvement to move forward with him as our head coach. Our focus is on hiring an exceptional leader for this football team and we will take a comprehensive approach to this process. We are excited about the core players we have to build around and develop and we look forward to bringing in a strong head coach that will put this group of players in the best position to succeed."
