Report: Browns DL coach Chris Kiffin leaving for Ole Miss

Browns GM Andrew Berry didn't flinch at the idea of playing QB Baker Mayfield without a new contract, and Mike Florio and Chris Simms discuss why they see this as the best move for Cleveland.

The Browns need a new position coach.

According to Bruce Feldman of, Cleveland’s defensive line coach Chris Kiffin is departing the organization to become a co-defensive coordinator at Ole Miss. He’s also expected to coach linebackers for the program.

Kiffin’s older brother, Lane, is Ole Miss’ head coach.

The younger Kiffin joined the Browns on head coach Kevin Stefanski’s first staff in 2020 after he served as a pass-rushing specialist for the 49ers from 2018-2019. Defensive end Myles Garrett set a single-season franchise record with 16.0 sacks in 2021.

Browns assistant defensive line coach Jeremy Garrett is also reportedly leaving the franchise to become the defensive line coach at Liberty.
