The Cleveland Browns named Rob Chudzinski their new head coach on Thursday, replacing Pat Shurmur, who was fired Dec. 31 after the Browns finished 5-11 this season.
Chudzinski spent the last two seasons as Carolina's offensive coordinator. He has had two previous stints with the Browns as an assistant coach. He coached tight ends in 2004 and was offensive coordinator from 2007-08. After his first stint on Cleveland's staff, Chudzinski spent two seasons as San Diego's tight ends coach.
