The Cleveland Browns were committed to sticking with their process.
That process apparently led them to Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski per Ian Rapoport

When Stefanski was in the running last year, he was interviewed by a panel that included Chief Strategy Officer Paul DePodesta.
It was reported that Stefanski was the first choice of DePodesta to become the Browns head coach before John Dorsey opted to hire Freddie Kitchens instead.
This time around, DePodesta got his man.
The Cleveland Browns came into the 2019 NFL season with high expectations, but finished with a disappointing 6-10 record.
It was a team that featured undisciplined play, stagnant offense, and an underachieving defense.
Stefanski will be in charge of getting Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield back to the way he was playing in the 2018 NFL season.
Mayfield struggled for much of 2019 seeing drops in production such as passer rating, completion percentage, and yards per attempt in comparison to his rookie season.
Will Kevin Stefanski be the answer the Browns have been looking for?
The 2020 NFL season will tell the tale soon enough.
