Cleveland Browns News: Freddie Kitchens wins in press conference
The Daily Dawg Tags keep you up to date on all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, like how Freddie Kitchens again impressed with his press conference
On Monday, the Cleveland Browns officially introduced the world to their new head coach as Freddie Kitchens held his opening press conference. The down to earth coach wasn’t flashy — which he never is — but he was genuine, engaging, and funny.
Kitchens once again won the press over, as well as the fans with his personality. He’s also made it clear he’s not there to self promote, and never has done so.
Perhaps that hurt him in the past as it took him a while to get recognized, but that humility is encouraging following the hubris shown by head coach Hue Jackson who did nothing but self promote.

In Freddie Kitchens, Browns choose ‘a football coach, not a media darling’ — Doug Lesmerises, Cleveland.com
"“That’s a good question, though,” Kitchens said, getting back on topic. “Would you have thought I would have used the word facetious? Secondly, would you know that facetious is one of two words in the English language that every vowel is in order, all right, and it contains every vowel of the English language?”I didn’t know that. I asked Kitchens what the other one was.“I can’t tell you that,” he said to laughs."
Kitchens sense of humor continues to win people over. He’s also proving to be exactly what this team needs and even if there are those outside of the organization that don’t get it, the Browns landed a good coach here.

"The guest list was appropriately star-studded, featuring baseball talent like Justin Turner and Eric Hosmer, celebrities like Jamie Foxx and Adam Sandler and other athletes including ex-Indiana Pacer Reggie Miller and Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. Mayfield is no stranger to playing on Sundays, so of course he brought his A-game:"
Mayfield hit what looked like a harmless popup, but somehow turned it into a home run and even leaped over a tag. Typical Baker just getting it done.
