The Cleveland Browns wasted no time firing Freddie Kitchens after losing to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, and Jarvis Landry might have given us a clue why.
On Monday, the Browns star receiver was asked what the traits the team needs its next head coach to possess. His answer was extremely telling, and it appeared to be an indirect dig toward Kitchens.
The Browns appeared to have a leadership problem from the very start of the 2019 campaign. Players did not seem to respond to Kitchens, who often looked well out of his depth leading the team. Though, given the fact he had never even been a coordinator for an entire season, that shouldn’t be a surprise.
The Browns have a ton of talent and need a true leader to shape it. It’s going to be interesting to see what the franchise does next, and the latest rumors indicate the team is looking at coaches with big-time experience to fill the void.
