Freddie Kitchens to join Giants’ coaching staff

Freddie Kitchens Browns

Joe Judge is filling out his coaching staff with the New York Giants, and he is adding some familiar names, including Freddie Kitchens.

AL.com’s Matt Zenitz reported on Tuesday that Kitchens is expected to be part of Judge’s staff on the Giants.

Kitchens was fired after going 6-10 in his lone season as head coach of the Cleveland Browns. The step up to head coach was a massive leap for Kitchens, who had only been a position coach in the NFL until 2017 and was only promoted to offensive coordinator after Todd Haley and Hue Jackson were fired in 2018. He was overmatched as head coach but may be back to a more comfortable assistant-type role now (Jason Garrett will be their offensive coordinator).

In addition to Kitchens, the Giants are hiring Jody Wright.

Bret Bielema is another coach who will be on Judge’s staff, as that news was also reported on Tuesday.

Garrett will be the Giants’ offensive coordinator and Patrick Graham their defensive coordinator. Other roles on the staff are unclear.
