Kitchens and Cleveland: 'Keeping him as OC will be a requisite for any head coach'

KNOXVILLE — Freddie Kitchens, former Alabama quarterback and teammate of Jeremy Pruitt, has one more game remaining in the 2018 season.

Like Pruitt, Kitchens’ first time as graduate assistant at the Power 5 level came in the SEC.

Kitchens served as a graduate assistant at LSU in 2000 under Nick Saban. In 1997, Pruitt served as a graduate assistant at Alabama during Kitchens’ senior season as the Crimson Tide’s quarterback.

Now, Kitchens is making a name for himself with the Cleveland Browns. Kitchens was promoted to offensive coordinator for the Browns on Oct. 29.

Since his promotion, the Browns are 5-2.

Jeff Risdon of Browns Wire discussed Kitchens with Vols Wire on Wednesday regarding Tennessee’s offensive coordinator search.

“I do think Kitchens will be back,” Risdon told Vols Wire. “Word is keeping him as offensive coordinator will be a requisite for any head coach, and he might wind up getting the job himself.”

Risdon also published a story on the Browns’ offensive coordinator Wednesday, further discussing Kitchens’ future in Cleveland.

“At minimum, it’s worth John Dorsey’s time as Browns GM to interview Kitchens for the head coaching job,” Risdon said.
