Rob Chudzinski is reportedly going to be one-and-done in Cleveland.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Chudzinski will be fired after finishing his first season as the Browns’ head coach. However, PFT has been told that while it doesn’t look good for Chudzinski, the report that the Browns have already decided to fire him is premature.
Although the Browns were far from a good team this season — today’s loss drops them to 4-12 — the decision to fire Chudzinski comes as a surprise. Coaches usually get at least a couple years to implement their own way of doing things and show they can build a winner, and considering how bad the Browns were when Chudzinski arrived, it’s odd that Chudzinski can’t get a second season on the job.
But there were rumblings in Cleveland that the front office wasn’t pleased with the way Chudzinski was doing things, and so his first season in Cleveland will be his last. The Browns will join the Texans — and likely a few other teams — in looking for a new head coach.
