The Cleveland Browns have a new head coach a little less than two weeks after firing Pat Shurmur.  Rob Chudzinski becomes the sixth head coach of the team since 1999.  Chudzinski comes to Cleveland from the Carolina Panthers where he was the offensive coordinator.  Chudzinski graduated from Miami of Florida where he played tight end.  He is from Toledo and graduated from Toledo St.John's Jesuit High School. 

A life long Browns fan, he coached tight ends for Cleveland in 2004 under Butch Davis and was offensive coordinator under former coach Romeo Crennel in 2007 when the team went 10-6, missing the playoffs by a game.  But in 2008, the bottom fell out and the Browns finished at 4-12 and Crennel along with most of his staff was fired.  Chudzinski said he told people in Cleveland that one day he would be back with the team in some capacity, he just didn't know what.

For Chudzinski this will be his first head coaching job on any level.  The team can now focus on finding a new general manager after Tom Heckert was let go along with Shurmur.  Reaction from Browns fans has been mixed, ranging from "give the new guy a chance," to "we hired another head coach in training."  Most Browns fans were expecting a big name hire a "stud", instead they got "Chud."
