Report: Freddie Kitchens to join Giants as tight ends coach
Freddie Kitchens has a new job, but it’s a pretty big step down from his old one.
According to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports, Kitchens is expected to join the New York Giants as the team’s new tight ends coach.

Kitchens has been a tight ends coach before, having served in the role with the Dallas Cowboys in 2006 and with the Arizona Cardinals from 2007 to 2012.
This was an expected move, but it shows how Kitchens is valued in NFL coaching circles. He’s an accomplished position coach who was completely in over his head in Cleveland last season as the head of the staff, going 6-10 amid high expectations. It’s unlikely he gets another chance at that, and he may have to be satisfied as a position coach in the NFL unless someone gives him another chance as a coordinator down the line.
