Breaking: #Browns interviewing Panthers OC Rob Chudzinski today in Berea, source tells PD. Former #Browns coordinator. — Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) January 9, 2013 Chudzinski, as many may recall, is partly responsible for turning Derek Anderson into a Pro Bowler as the offensive coordinator under Romeo Crennel. Prior to his stint as OC, he was the tight ends coach in 2004. A Toledo native, Chudzinski was relieved of his duties once Eric Mangini came to town and had three head coaching interviews last offseason alone. Most recently, his tight end-friendly vertical passing attack has been featured in Carolina with Cam Newton. The Panthers, in 2012, were 19th in total offense, amassing 22.3 points per game.
