BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns are planning to hire Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as their head coach, a source confirmed to ESPN.

Stefanski, 37, will replace Freddie Kitchens, whom the Browns fired on Dec. 29 after only one season and a 6-10 record. Stefanski was a finalist for the Cleveland job last year as well, before the team promoted Kitchens from interim offensive coordinator instead.

NFL Network first reported the Browns' plan to hire Stefanski.

The Vikings fell 27-10 to the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round Saturday, clearing the way for Cleveland to officially move forward with Stefanski.

The Browns met with eight candidates, including 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh. They also interviewed Mike McCarthy, whom the Dallas Cowboyslater hired to be their head coach, Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman, Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, Buffalo Billsoffensive coordinator Brian Daboll, Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

The Browns did not overreact to Saturday's performance of Stefanski's offense, which managed just 147 yards of total offense and allowed six sacks.

Stefanski becomes the franchise's 18th head coach, but already the 12th (including interim head coaches) since the Browns returned to the NFL in 1999. Stefanski will also be the fifth head coach that owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam have hired since purchasing the team in 2012.

The Haslams are still searching for a new general manager to pair with Stefanski in the wake of firing John Dorsey on Dec. 31 after just two years.

Major mistake. They will stay the suckage team they've always been now. LOL. They pass over Robert Saleh for this guy???? Although one thing about Saleh. He has FIVE first round draft picks playing/rotating along his D line. He lost D Ford and Kwan Alexander for a stretch and suddenly that D looked not so invincible. Even yesterday with one change at CB his D changed. But I'd say put that guy at HC in an organization that knows how to draft and acquire talent and he's gonna be a top notch perennial winner. He just motivates his players and has a way about him.....all his players are awed by his ability to coach and teach......amazes me there will probably be no team that takes him as a HC. Are there any vacancies even left?????

There should be one in LA, and I wouldn't put it past them to do it in March....but no, I think that's all the vacancies.

8-9 you mean. 17 game season coming.
And for the Spanni Circus to win 8, yes, that's improvement.

I would rather be Cleveland than L.A. At least the Browns have redeeming qualities. There is nothing likeable about the Spanoses.
You may list Cleveland's football redeeming qualities whenever it's possible.

One could claim sludge and sewage are two different things but it wouldn't smell different.

A big lake? People who can survive the cold? Rock 'n roll Hall of Fame. Major Leagues baseball movies. Spanos isn't there.

Our Satan is actually Satan. Beezlebub and Spanos are devilish names. I am pretty sure that evil goat statue that Satanists bow down to is an exact image of Spanos.

Modell is a Mexican beer or a tall, skinny chick.

Irsay is a talking ear.

Spanos is the devil. I am not Christian, but, according the Book of Revelations, Los Angeles (the Angels) take him down. Thank God.
