CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Head coach Freddie Kitchens spoke Monday, less than 24 hours after another disappointing Browns loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Kitchens addressed a comment he made immediately following the 38-24 loss.

The first-year head coach initially said he care about his future with the organization.

But those comments were misconstrued, Kitchens said.

“I care about my job. I only care about getting better today. That’s what I was trying to illustrate,” Kitchens said during Monday’s news conference.

“Of course I want to be back,” Kitchens added.

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry was seen confronting Kitchens during an attempt at a second-half comeback on Sunday.

Landry said he was asking for a play that would get him the ball.

Kitchens said on Monday that he wouldn’t change a thing about Landry’s passion and desire for winning.

“I wouldn’t change Jarvis for anything,” Kitchens said on Monday about the exchange. “I don’t have a problem with Jarvis.”

The Browns host the 11-2 Baltimore Ravens for the team’s final home game in Cleveland on Sunday.
