Browns pass on Colts' Matt Eberflus as new head coach

ESPN was first to announce the decision.
The Browns have had 10 different head coaches since the franchise reentered the National Football League in 1999, and two have been interim head coaches.
With Kitchens running the offense, Baker Mayfield became a star, and the offense put up big numbers in winning five of the final eight games, and almost beat the eventual AFC North Champion Ravens on the road in week 17.
The 44-year old Kitchens becomes the ninth full-time head coach in the expansion era, and the fourth hire since the Haslams purchased the team in 2012. After Kitchens took over play-calling duties, Baker's completed 180-of-263 passes (68.4%) for 2,254 yards and 19 TDs to eight interceptions.
Kitchens has no previous head coaching experience, but his work with Cleveland's offense - most notably quarterbackBaker Mayfield - in the season's second half vaulted him ahead of the other six candidates interviewed by the Browns, who were looking for the right coach to lead them following a stunning turnaround season. Ken Whisenhunt was the head coach for most of the years that Kitchens was in Arizona, and he would be considered for the job, except that he is now running a pretty successful offense in Los Angeles for the Chargers.
"When you cause a defense to flinch a little bit or if you cause the defense to overthink a little bit, then maybe you have them on their heels instead of their toes", Williams said of Kitchens in late November, per ESPN's Pat McManamon. I'm not going to get involved.
Also, Gregg Williams, who went 5-3 as Cleveland's interim coach and defensive coordinator this season, is no longer with the team, the person said. He replaced fired offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Williams was the first candidate to interview for the coaching vacancy. Jones is a Bruce Arians disciple.
An official announcement from the Browns announcing Kitchens is expected later this afternoon.
