CLEVELAND (WJW) — The Cleveland Browns ended the season on a low note losing their final game against the Bengals, who had only won one game prior to Sunday’s match up.

And it didn’t long for fans to start weighing in on head coach Freddie Kitchens’ future with the team.

Many took to social media calling for him to be fired using the hashtag #firefreddie.

Despite the criticism, Kitchens seems to be unfazed. After the game, he told reporters he’s going to show up tomorrow and do his job.

“They have not given me any indication of anything else. I don’t think Mr. Jimmy and Dee — they just want me to do my job and that’s what I’m going to do,” he said. “I seriously don’t want to get into speculation because I have not been told anything.”

He admitted that sometimes he felt he did a good job and other times he didn’t and went on to say “I’ll learn from my mistakes.”

Quarterback Baker Mayfield was also asked about Kitchens’ fate and noted that it’s not fair to blame one person.

“He truly cares about his players and putting them in the best position to win. It’s not an ego thing for him. He wants us to be successful and we haven’t had the success we wanted, so everybody is frustrated,” he said. “A lot of the blame gets put everywhere, but it should be shared throughout this franchise not just our locker room. So it’s stuff that we have to address and whatever happens happens, we roll with the punches.”
