The Cleveland Browns have hired former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as their head coach.
San Fransisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh nearly landed the job and will now be considered as a top candidate for years to come. This obviously means New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels will remain in New England. As for the Vikings, they’ll need a new offensive coordinator but Gary Kubiak remains there as assistant head coach.

Stefanski nearly landed the Browns’ head coaching position last year but the job obviously went to Freddie Kitchens, who was fired after the team went 6-10.
