In Cleveland Browns rumors, the organization hasn’t reached out to Bruce Arians regarding the organization’s coaching vacancy.

The Cleveland Browns could interview Bruce Arians for their coaching gig right now, but they haven’t, according to ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi.

The longtime Browns’ scribe recently tweeted that there’s been no contact between Arians and Cleveland.

Arians retired after a successful stint coaching the Arizona Cardinals, which included a trip to the NFC Championship game a few years back.

He’s said the only job he return to the NFL for is that of the Cleveland Browns.

Interestingly, Arians will be calling the Browns Week 13 contest in Houston as Cleveland seeks to end the Texans eight-game winning streak.

It’s a little nugget of news, but imaginations are surely running rampant following Grossi’s tweet. Here’s what I think.

• If Arians was a serious candidate, it would make sense that he would at least be contacted by the Browns.

• This bodes well for Gregg Williams, who is in the interim role as head coach. They’re not trying to replace him yet, and if he keeps winning, it becomes harder to do so, at least from a public relations standpoint.

• Freddie Kitchens recent comments only made Browns’ fans love him more. He defended Baker Mayfield from recent comments made about Hue Jackson. The national media has been taking Mayfield to task, and it’s reached a new level of absurdity.

• Continuity is so important when it comes to developing Mayfield, which is why Browns’ fans should be looking for a path to keep Kitchens with the organization should the No. 1 overall pick continue to show progress.

• Look at how Marcus Mariotta and Jameis Winston have been impacted by constant changes in their organization. Their progress has been impeded and the Browns can’t let that happen to Mayfield.

• If the Browns go for the buzz phrase of hiring a “Young, offensive minded coach,” don’t you think that individual will want to bring in his own talent? If ownership goes in this direction, fine, but they can’t force anymore shotgun marriages, even if they start out amicably.

• Stability matters and the more the Browns show out under Williams and Kitchens, the more I like and support their chances of staying.

As the head coach, I think the No. 1 trait you have to possess when it comes to overseeing pro football players is being a motivator of men.

Williams obviously checks those boxes.

And not to mention, his defense continues to ball out, ranking second in the NFL in forced turnovers.

Remember, had the Browns won two more games under Jackson, Williams would be looking like a genius for what he’s accomplished don defense.

• As for Kitchens, he’s still new at this play calling gig. So far, so good. He has talent and the Browns can’t afford to let someone with his ability to just walk out the door.
