Cleveland Browns Making Another Huge Change
The Cleveland Browns are making another huge change.
Late Monday evening, the organization officially announced that former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski was their new head coach.
Stefanski ultimately beat out the likes of New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kevin as the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns,” team owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam said in a statement.
“We were looking for a strong leader of this football team, a very bright coach with a high football IQ, who could establish a strong understanding of what he expected of his players, hold them accountable and confidently navigate the challenges and opportunities that present themselves throughout a season. Kevin exemplifies these qualities and more.”
Hearing Andrew Berry and Wade Phillips will be in Cleveland.

Stefanski plans to hit the ground running.
According to NFL insider Dustin Fox, Cleveland is reportedly looking to make two immediate big moves.
The first is hiring defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, and the second is bringing on Philadelphia eagles vice president Andrew Berry.
Phillips is widely respected around the league and is fresh off a stint with Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams.
Berry has been one of the more well-regarded league execs over the past year and would be a huge addition to the Browns.
If all goes well on both fronts the hires should be announced later this week.
