By the Numbers: How Kevin Stefanski impressed as Vikings offensive coordinator

In light of today's big news, we're pulling out the most important numbers when it comes to new Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski.

18 - Stefanski becomes the 18th full-time head coach in the history of the Browns franchise. He's the 10th since the Browns returned in 1999.

14 - Seasons logged by Stefanski in Minnesota, making him easily the team's longest tenured coach. His stay with the Vikings spanned three head coaches.

2 - Consecutive years in which Stefanski interviewed to become Browns head coach. He interviewed twice in 2019 and was the only repeat candidate from last year's search.

3 - Different positions (QBs, RBs, TEs) Stefanski coached before taking over as the Vikings' full-time offensive coordinator. Ironically, Stefanski played on the defensive side of the ball at the University of Pennsylvania.

28 - Sacks surrendered by the Vikings in 2019, a decrease of 12 from the previous season and a total that ranked as the fifth-fewest in the NFL.

107.4 - Quarterback rating posted this season by veteran Kirk Cousins, the best of his eight NFL seasons and a mark that ranked fourth in the NFL.

476 - Number of times Minnesota attempted a run in 2019, making it one of just three teams in the NFL (Baltimore and San Francisco being the others) that rushed more than it passed.

4,298 - Cousins finished the 2018 regular season with the second-most passing yards in franchise history and most of his career.

15 - Years between road playoff wins for the Vikings, who collected their first since 2005 when they beat the Saints in last week's Wild Card round. The Vikings did it by scoring a touchdown on the opening possession of overtime, never letting New Orleans possess the ball.

37 - Years of age for Stefanski, who becomes the third-youngest head coach in the NFL behind Cincinnati's Zac Taylor and Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay.
