CLEVELAND, Ohio - (AP) A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that the Cleveland Browns are hiring Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as their coach. Stefanski accepted the position Sunday, a day after Minnesota lost in the playoffs. That's according to the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the sides have yet to finalize a contract. An official announcement is expected Monday. The 37-year-old Stefanski was one of eight candidates to interview with the Browns. They fired Freddie Kitchens after going 6-10 this season. The Browns will next hire a new general manager.
