The Cleveland Browns have officially named former Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as their Head Coach.
After the firing of Freddie Kitchens, the Browns Head Coach began with Josh McDaniels, Kevin Stefanski, Eric Bienemy, Brian Daboll, Mike McCarthy, Greg Roman, Robert Saleh, and Jim Schwartz. Slowly, it seemed that the race was narrowing down, until last week when it was believed that the race was between Saleh, Stefanski, McDaniels, and Daboll.
During the Divisional Round Playoff game between the Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers, it was reported that the Browns wouldn’t make a decision until Sunday. This left fans and reporters wondering if they were analyzing the performances in this game by the Minnesota offense (Stefanski) and San Francisco defense (Saleh). Then, Sunday morning, Cleveland made it official that Stefanski would be hired as the new head coach.
The Browns are in need of someone who can take all of the personalities of the players and make it work. They are also in need of someone who can get the offense going, which Freddie Kitchens didn’t do very well last season. Cleveland and its fans are hopeful that Stefanski will bring a bright future to the organization. But until next season starts, we’ll have to wait and see.
