via: Ken Blaze USA Today Sports

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Cleveland Browns have officially cut ties with head coach Freddie Kitchens, firing him after Sunday’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Kitchens, who finished with a 7-9 record, had faced criticism the second he was hired by general manager John Dorsey due to his lack of experience as an offensive play-caller and head coach.

Rapoport reported that Kitchens was extremely emotional over the Browns decision to let him go after just one season.

Dorsey also released a statement regarding the decision to let Kitchens go which read as followed:

“I would like to thank Freddie for his dedication and efforts this past season. We are disappointed in our results and feel a change is necessary. Freddie is a good man and good football coach. We wish he and his family nothing but success.”

The Browns will now search for its seventh head coach in nine seasons.
