The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Five Coaching Moves the Browns Should Do

Five Coaching Moves the Browns Should Do

Hire and fire

With the playoffs out of reach, it’s time to start looking towards next year. One of the most important decisions that GM John Dorsey needs to make this off-season is about the head coach and his staff. Here are five moves that would make sense for the Browns.

Remove the word “Interim” from Gregg Williams, Freddie Kitchens and Blake Williams.

The Browns have won more games with Gregg Williams as full-time head coach than they did in two and a half seasons with Hue Jackson. Williams is a leader of men and has been in the league so long that he has a long list of coaches he’s worked with to fill some holes on the staff.

His play-callers, Freddie Kitchens and Blake Williams, have done well since moving up to the coordinator spots. The team has really stepped up under their tutelage and they have earned this opportunity.

Replace QB Coach Ken Zampese with current RB Coach Ryan Lindley

Ken Zampese is a Hue Jackson guy and likely did not get ousted earlier this season because the front office did not want to lose another coach that QB Baker Mayfield has gotten accustomed to. At this point, moving on from Zampese would not be as detrimental because Ryan Lindley is on the staff and has spent time working with Baker (besides for working with the running backs). Additionally, Lindley has a good relationship with Freddie Kitchens as Lindley played under Kitchens in Arizona.

Hire Earnest Byner as RB Coach

Earnest Byner is a Browns legend and that should be enough of a reason to hire him. Want more? Okay, he has worked as a running backs coach before with the Washington Redskins…whose defensive coordinator was Gregg Williams. That’s right, as mentioned before, Williams has worked with many qualified individuals who can be assistant coaches for the Browns. Lastly, Byner knows his stuff. Check out his Twitter for amazing video breakdowns and you can see for yourself why he would be a good coach.

Hire Frank Bush as LB Coach

With Blake Williams becoming a full-time coordinator, the Browns will need a new linebackers coach. Frank Bush has worked with/for Gregg Williams a few times before in his career. Bush is currently the linebackers coach for the Miami Dolphins and as there may be changes in the Miami coaching staff, Bush will be ripe for the picking.

Fire Special Teams Coordinator Amos Jones

The Browns’ special teams have struggled this year and replacing Amos Jones may help the situation. Getting younger coaches in that spot could be very helpful like Sam Shade and Josh Cribbs, both of whom have worked with the Browns this season. Additionally, Cribbs is a Browns legend and has a lot of special teams knowledge to pass on.

While these moves may or may not happen, here is what could be done looking forward to next season. Building up QB Baker Mayfield should be the top priority and the minimal disturbance to the offensive coaches should be taken into account. Whatever happens, GM John Dorsey will do whatever he feels is best for Baker, which is all any Browns fan can ask for.
