The Cleveland Browns reportedly have new head coach Freddie Kitchens’ staff in place before his introductory press conference on Monday morning.

According to multiple sources, Kitchens has pegged Todd Monken as his offensive coordinator and Steve Wilks to lead his defense. The Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot reported James Campen has been hired as an associate head coach/offensive line coach.

The hirings are expected to be officially announced before Monday’s press conference.

Monken served in the same role with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers since 2016. He was well sought after and also interviewed with the Green Bay Packers, New York Jets, Detroit Lions, and Cincinnati Bengals for their offensive coordinator openings.

After serving as head coach for just one season in Arizona, Wilks was fired on Dec. 31. He previously served as defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach for the Carolina Panthers.
