Mary Kay Cabot
reports that Browns QB Baker Mayfield
was not as involved in the hiring process. Although, a source tells her that Mayfield provided a favorable opinion of Freddie Kitchens
the day after the season before he left town.
Regarding Mike McCarthy, Cabot says he told the Browns that he was willing to wait for them to talk to some of their other candidates first and get a feel for the search. From there, Cabot mentions that interest from both parties cooled.
According to Cabot, interim HC Gregg Williams “never had a serious chance” of getting the full-time gig because he was hired by Hue Jackson and was one of Jackson’s righthand men over the past two seasons.
Cabot says that Brown GM John Dorsey had “long had his eye on” Vikings OC Kevin Stefanski and actually suggested him as a potential OC hire to Jackson last year. A source tells Cabot that Stefanski was actually the leader in the clubhouse for their HC job before Kitchens interviewed.
Kitchens reportedly won the committee in his initial session. Dorsey reportedly preferred Kitchens.
