The New York Giants hired Jason Garrett as their next offensive coordinator, and they are adding another head coach from the 2019 season to their coaching staff. Just a few days after hiring Garrett, Freddie Kitchens is joining New York's coaching staff.

As of this moment, it is unclear what Kitchens' role with the Giants will be in 2020. However, Kitchens joining New York's coaching staff shouldn't come as a surprise due to his previous experience with Joe Judge.

Of course, Judge was hired as the next head coach of the Giants following the firing of Pat Shurmur. But before Kitchens and Judge arrived in the NFL, they both spent time together at Mississippi State.

Judge was a graduate assistant from 2005-2007 while Kitchens spent the 2005 season as Mississipi State's running backs coach. Last offseason, Kitchens became the head coach of the Cleveland Browns after serving a season as their offensive coordinator in 2018.

In his first season as a head coach, Kitchens led the Browns to an abysmal 6-10 record in 2019. Due to Cleveland not living up to expectations, the Browns' front office decided to part ways with him after one season.

At the least, it appears that Kitchens is going to have an offensive role on Judge's coaching staff. Considering his previous experience, it's likely that Kitchens is going to work with the running backs or tight ends.

With Judge being a first-year head coach, it seems as if he is adding assistants to his staff that have experience as head coaches in the NFL. It remains to be seen if that way of thinking is going to pan out next season.
