Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator has been a revelation since taking control of the team’s offense in October.
Moving seamlessly from running backs coach to running the offense in the wake of the firings of head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley, Kitchens has meshed with rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield to bring the fun back to Browns football.
The duo of Kitchens and Mayfield have transformed the Browns into one of the best offenses in football, according to Pro Football Focus:
In addition to the work that he has done with the offense, Kitchens has endeared himself to Browns fans with his wardrobe choice on game days.
Since the beginning of the month, Kitchens has donned an orange sweatshirt with the words Dawg Pound displayed prominently across the front, and he has no plans to change things up, as he explained on Thursday, according to clevelandbrowns.com:
“Actually, I know I am from Alabama, but I loved the Dawg Pound ever since back in the mid-80s when (former Browns QB) Bernie (Kosar) was playing and things like that and – I do not mean to bring this up – but when the Broncos and all came in town and the playoff games and stuff. I really loved the Dawg Pound, but I like the sweatshirt. My daughters like the sweatshirt, and honestly, that is the reason why I wear it is because my daughters like the sweatshirt.”
It may not be as awesome as wearing a sweatshirt with the iconic Brownie Elf on it, but Kitchens continues to show that he gets the little things when it comes to the Browns and their fans.
