Greg Williams gets a lot of shit, but it's hard to argue that he wasn't successful. The guys play hard for him and he seems to set a good atmosphere of accountability to the team.

But Kitchens is arguably more directly responsible for the team's resurgence, with night and day differences in offensive game planning. He may be one of the great upcoming offensive minds, I don't know. If we do retain the interim staff, and the Browns offense does really well, then Kitchens probably leaves for a HC job next year.

If the Browns think they've found someone special, I'd be okay with that.
There's a difference between being a coordinator and being a generalist. Some head coaches might be outperformed as coordinators, and some coordinators aren't good at managing personnel.
