Is Rob Chudzinski The Right Hire for the Cleveland Browns?
The Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator is the new head coach of the Cleveland Browns
Many Cleveland Browns fans were left scratching their heads Thursday night as the team announced the hiring of Rob Chudzinski as head coach.
Chudzinksi has been the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers for the past two years and was an assistant coach with the Browns twice with stints in 2004 and 2007, according to ESPN.com.
With Chudzinkski as the new head coach, sources say he will bring former San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner with him as the offensive coordinator, The Plain Dealer reports. Turner was fired by the Chargers after the season ended.
This is a dream job for the new coach, who grew up a diehard Browns fan in Toledo and followed the team as a kid.
Many fans are wondering what happened to the big names owner Jimmy Haslem was originally going after. After Chip Kelly decided to stay at Oregon, names like Ken Whisenhunt, Bruce Arians, Marc Trestmen and Mike Zimmer were tossed around and most were interviewed.
