Cleveland Browns Hire Rob Chudzinski As New Head Coach

The Cleveland Browns have found their next head coach and they find it from a familiar face. Rob Chudzinski will no longer be the offensive coordinator for Ron Rivera and the Carolina Panthers. He accepted the offer to be the Browns next head coach last night.

It will be his first tenure as a head coach in the National Football League. He has previously worked in Cleveland two other times. He was their offensive coordinator from 2007-08 and was also the tight ends coach in 2004.

He has also previously worked for the San Diego Chargers (two times) and the University of Miami (numerous occasions).

Reports are already coming in that Chudzinski is looking to hire his former boss from San Diego, Norv Turner, as his offensive coordinator.

Things are starting to look brighter in Cleveland already.

Chudzinski was on the short list of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season in their head coach search before they hired Greg Schiano.

Chudzinski is a life long Cleveland sports fan who is from Ohio and it should make absolute sense as to why he choose to take the job offer. Chudzinski has potential as a coach and while he hasn’t had much success yet, if he can get the right players and coaches…he could be one of the best new faces in the NFL.
