The 2020 season is the Cleveland Browns' 68th as a member of the National Football League, their 72nd overall, and their first under general manager Andrew Berry and head coach Kevin Stefanski. The Browns will attempt to improve on their 6–10 record from 2019, as well as end their franchise-record and league-high 17-year playoff drought.

Offseason

Front office changes

On December 31, 2019, the Browns and general manager John Dorsey mutually agreed to part ways.[1] Dorsey had served as the Browns' GM since December 2017.

On January 27, 2020, the Browns hired former Philadelphia Eagles' vice president of football operations Andrew Berry as general manager. Berry previously served as the Browns' vice president of player personnel from 2016–18.[2] At age 32, Berry became the youngest general manager in NFL history.[3]

On January 29, the Browns and vice president of player personnel Alonzo Highsmith and assistant general manager Eliot Wolf mutually agreed to part ways after the hiring of Berry. Both had served in their roles since the 2017 hiring of Dorsey.[4]

Coaching changes

On December 29, 2019, the Browns fired head coach Freddie Kitchens. In one season as Browns' head coach, Kitchens posted a 6–10 (.375) record.[5]

On January 13, 2020, the Browns hired former Minnesota Vikings' offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as head coach. Stefanski served as a Vikings' assistant coach from 2006–19, including the past two seasons as their offensive coordinator. This will mark Stefanski's first NFL head coaching opportunity.[6]

On January 29, the Browns hired former Cincinnati Bengals' quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt as offensive coordinator. Van Pelt, who served as offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills in 2009, replaced Todd Monken, who was not retained by Stefanski.[7]

On February 7, the Browns hired former San Francisco 49ers' defensive backs coach Joe Woods as defensive coordinator. Woods, who previously served as the defensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos from 2017–18, replaced Steve Wilks, who was not retained by Stefanski.[8]
