Waiting For Next Year:
NFL.com’s Ian Rapport is reporting that if former Browns DC Mel Tucker doesn’t get the Jaguars job, he could land in Cleveland.
Mel Tucker plans to interview with #Jaguars for their HC job, source confirmed. No date set. 1 other possibility: Back w #Browns for Chud
— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 12, 2013
In 2007 and 2008, Mel Tucker was on #Browns staff. He served as DC in 2008. Ran a 4-3 with Jags this year, a 3-4 with Browns in 2008

It’s interesting that Tucker has ran both the 3-4 and the 4-3 in the past, it shows he’s not married to one system. The last thing I’d like to see is the Browns switch, yet again, from the 3-4 to the 4-3 and have to overturn their defensive personnel.
Tucker, 41 and born in Cleveland, was the defensive coordinator in Jacksonville last year. The Jags were 30th in yards allowed and gave up an average of 27.8 points per game (tied for 29th). In 2008, Tucker’s Browns gave up a middle-of-the-pack 21.9 ppg but were 26th in total yards allowed. Tucker began his coaching career at Michigan State, under that Nick Saban guy. Anyone heard of him?

Well, we might have a guess on another coach under Rob Chudzinski for the Browns. Adam Schefter at ESPN has the report:
Six teams – OAK, KC, DET, CHI, CAR, IND – have asked to interview Browns ST coach Chris Tabor and Cleveland has denied permission on Tabor.

This is in contrast to what Jimmy Haslam said at the press conference...
For the first time since 2009, the Browns have had two players voted to the Associated Press All-Pro Team. Kicker Phil Dawson joins tackle Joe Thomas as the Browns representatives on the 2012 AP All-Pro Team.
Joe Thomas was selected to his fifth straight All-Pro team (just two votes shy of his fourth consecutive First Team selection) and this marks Dawson’s second time on the...
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Cleveland Browns will make Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski their next head coach. It was reported earlier today that the Browns were giving Ken Whisenhunt a second interview, but it seems like they didn’t want to go in that direction. Chadzinski certainly isn’t a sexy candidate, but with a new owner and front office, all...
Terry Pluto called it underwhelming. That’s the only thing I read about the Browns hiring of Rob Chudzinski before I took to my keyboard to react. And my reaction is pretty much nothing. I can’t be excited because I wasn’t in the interviews. I can’t be totally disappointed for the same reason. The only reaction I have is actually more of a demand. Show me why this was a good...
As I watched the Cleveland Browns press conference with the formal announcement naming Rob Chudzinski as the team’s new head coach, I couldn’t help but think this was a great hire for the team. The presser itself was non-descript, there were a lot of cliched remarks and generic answers tossed about. There was no discussion about personnel moves or possible hires for the coaching...
The Cleveland Browns announced on Jan. 10 that Rob Chudzinski has been hired as the NFL team’s new head coach. Chudzinski comes over from the Carolina Panthers, where he spent the last two years as the club’s offensive coordinator. He becomes Cleveland’s sixth head coach since the 1999 season. It’s also the third time the Browns have hired Chudzinski as he worked for the...
Looks possible that Norv Turner may not be the only former Chargers coach joining Rod Chudzinski in Cleveland. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports:
Browns HC Rob Chudzinski targeting SD’s John Pagano as his defensive coordinator. KC also did, but Chargers wouldn’t let him out of deal yet

Ohio.com’s Nate Ulrich adds:
Pagano was a...
From the Browns-
The Cleveland Browns today named Rob Chudzinski as the 14th full-time head coach in franchise history. Chudzinski comes to the team after spending the past two seasons (2011-12) as the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers. Overall, Chudzinski’s résumé includes 19 years of experience, including nine seasons in the NFL.
Chudzinski re-joins the Browns...
Last night the Cleveland Browns made a surprising hire by naming Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski their new head coach.
Chudzinski has hit the ground running and his first duty as head coach was to find someone to an implement an offensive system that can be productive.
According to Pro Football Talk, Chudzinski will hire a guy that regardless of his ability as a head...
According to Peter Schrager of FOXSports.com, the Cleveland Browns will likely hire Norv Turner as their new offensive coordinator now that Rob Chudzinski has been brought in as their new head coach.
If the Browns are able to land Turner, their offense will be in very good hands. He’s arguably the best offensive mind’s in the game.

OK, I often make very bold statements, and this one is no different from the rest.The Cleveland Browns are a few off-season moves from returning to playoff contention, an accomplishment their fans have been dying to witness since the team’s last playoff appearance in 2007. Following their return in 1999 after the late Art Modell relocated the original Browns to Baltimore (now...
