Rob Chudzinski Fired by the Browns After Just One Season, According to ESPN

Rob Chudzinski fired

Rob Chudzinski has been fired as coach of the Cleveland Browns, according to ESPN. Chudzinski completed his first year in Cleveland at 4-12, though one could argue he never had a chance. He entered the season with Brandon Weeden as his QB, but he was benched for ineffectiveness, and the Browns rolled through Brian Hoyer (injured) and then journeyman Jason Campbell (up-and-down). Cleveland traded its top running back, Trent Richardson, early in the season – the deal looks good so far, but as we saw with RG3, let’s wait to declare a winner – and the Browns relied upon defense to keep them in games. Josh Gordon had a tremendous season at receiver, and tight end Jordan Cameron is a keeper, but that’s about it.

It felt like Chudzinski was a stopgap anyway, after they couldn’t get Chip Kelly last January. But seriously, who fires a coach after one season? Let’s take a moment to laugh at these clowns who declared the Browns ‘winners’ in getting Chud over Chip Kelly:

The good news is, the Browns have a lot of picks in the 2014 draft, and there’s actual talent on the defense to build around.

GM Mike Lombardi – formerly of ESPN NFL Network – is going to have folks lining up for this job given how bright the future looks for Cleveland, QB pending, of course.
