Kitchens, Stefanski finalists for Browns' job

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, citing multiple league sources, reported Tuesday afternoon that the Browns are zeroing in on Kitchens and that several assistant coaches have been asked to remain with the team going forward indicating Kitchens in fact could be promoted. But they appear to be closing in on their man if the latest reports are correct.

Stefanski interviewed with the Cleveland Browns last Friday for their head coaching job and, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Stefanski will get a second interview with the Browns.

The Browns blocked other National Football League teams from interviewing Kitchens for their offensive coordinator positions so they could keep him in house, and that might be the strongest lead to letting you know that he might be the man to lead this franchise to bigger and better things in the future.

Kitchens became a fan favorite in Cleveland after the Browns' offense improved with him calling plays down the stretch of the season. He finished the year in that role after replacing the fired John DeFilippo for the final three games of the regular season.

Cabot's report also comes on the heels of an ESPN report that stated the Browns were putting their interest in former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy "on hold".
