Browns hire Rod Chudzinski as new coach

Published: Thu, January 10, 2013 @ 11:52 p.m.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Rob Chudzinski's first head coaching job will be with the team he loved as a kid.

Chudzinski, who spent the past two seasons as Carolina's offensive coordinator, has been hired by the Browns as their sixth full-time coach since 1999. It's the third stint in Cleveland for Chudzinski, who worked with the Browns previously as an assistant.

The Browns hope the first-time head coach can end years of despair and constant losing, and maybe resurrect a franchise that has made just one trip to the playoffs in the past 14 years.

The team confirmed Chudzinski's hiring with a release late tonight and said he will be introduced at an 11 a.m. news conference at the team's facility in Berea on Friday.

Chudzinski will be the Browns' 14th coach in team history. He replaces Pat Shurmur, another first-time coach when he was hired, who was fired on Dec. 31 after a 5-11 season. For the past two years, the 44-year-old Chudzinski has worked with talented Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

Lest anyone be worries, the panthers were an offensive powerhouse this year dominating opponents and advancing deep into the.post season.

When chudzinski was in Cleveland as offensive coordinator under crennel, the browns again were nearly unstoppable. Opposing defenses quaked for the entire week before game day in fear of the high octane offense orchestrated by rod.
