Cleveland Browns Name Rob Chudzinski Head Coach. Norv Turner Likely OC


Former San Diego Chargers tight ends and assistant coach Rob Chudzinski has landed the head coaching gig with the Cleveland Browns, per Chris Mortenen. If that name was on Tom Telesco’s short list, you can scratch it off now. I always thought Chudzinski would be a good head coach and there were times I wanted him to take over for Norval here in San Diego.

The biggest twist to this whole thing, Chudzinski will likely bring over Norv Turner to be his offensive coordinator. It is going to be Chargers East in Cleveland. all they need is AJ Smith to make personnel decisions for them. I wonder how long it will take for the Browns fans to complain about running the ball on first and second down? And complain about the predictable play calling?

It also sounds like Norv’s son is heading out to Cleveland to coach also. They deserve something good out in Cleveland after LeBron left them out to dry. They get the Turner tandem!

I wonder who they will use at quarterback? I wonder if they want to trade for Robert Meachem? He showed the city of Cleveland that he has great hands!

    They have Trent Richardson and a decent o line, not Mathews and a garbage o line so running it early and often would make sense.

      I know he killed us, but Richardson didn’t exactly set the world on fire his first year. He actually averaged less yards per carry than Ryan

        Lol by .2 yards, t rich also had almost 100 more carries and 10 more td’s than RM. That sounds like what Merril Hodge would call a “Factor Back”

          Still. He has no QB and teams will stack up on the run.

            Richardson was hurt early and late. Ingram is always hurt in n.o. too. Seems the last two small backs from Alabama are injury prone. No receivers in Cleveland either.

    What the hell is wrong with this picture? Looks like Chud is flirting with the old man in the bottom right of the picture… weird choice IMO for the Browns, but good luck with that he is another ‘nice guy’

      hahahah… when i chose the picture, i was wondering what the heck he was doing also. still decided to select it anyway.

        You should always choose the picture that make the other teams/coaches/player look ridiculous. Damnit entertainment is your job!

          hahaha.. i try to do my best. he looks like he is blowing kisses out to old man!

          • tubbs45

            he just looks saucy!

    Oh Snap: Wednesday night, the Browns have already begun adding to their new coaching staff. According to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports, the Browns are expected to hire former San DiegoChargers head coach Norv Turner as their new offensive coordinator. …

      should be interesting to see what they do out there with both chud and norval there. very interesting

        At least we know the press is going to get thrilling answers to whatever questions are asked of them! I never dis-liked Norval, but AJ was a Class-A Douche for elephants. Wonder if the Browns will ever find a quaterback and RB at the same time? Norval will be hurting without with QB help.
