Browns say Chudzinski as head coach was a mistake

In The Region:

The Cleveland Brown’s front office admits last years’ hiring of rookie head coach Rob Chudzinski was a mistake. Chudzinski was fired following Sunday’s loss to Pittsburgh in the season finale that left the Browns with a four-and-twelve record. As WKSU’s Kevin Niedermier reports, the Browns are now looking for their seventh head coach since returning to the league in 1999.

A familiar scene played out at Browns headquarters in Berea after the team lost 10 of its last 11 games. During a press conference, owner Jimmy Haslam said the decision to fire head coach Chudzinski was made Saturday. And despite playing most of the season with backup quarterbacks, Haslam says the team did not show enough improvement to warrant giving the rookie head coach another year.

“There’ll be a lot of people who say we should have given this staff a second chance, and that’s a very fair and valid comment.  And in our estimation we were best to go ahead and make a change and try to get it right so we can move forward. And candidly, most importantly, give the fans here the kind of winner they deserve.”

Haslam points out that he’s still paying Chudzinski more than $10 million, and that expensive move should show skeptical Browns fans that he’s serious about finally putting a winner on the field. The search for a new head coach to make that happen has already started.
