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 — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 12, 2013 Ohio.com’s Nate Ulrich adds: Pagano was a defensive coordinator for the first time during the 2012 season. The Chargers ranked 24th with 326.4 yards allowed per game and 17th with 21.9 points allowed per game. On Friday, Chudzinski, an offensive coach, and CEO Joe Banner indicated they like hybrid defenses that use 3-4 and 4-3 alignments, but the defensive coordinator will ultimately decide the type of scheme the Browns use. The Browns have used a 4-3 system for the past two seasons under defensive coordinator Dick Jauron, who’s not expected to return. Pagano ran a 3-4 base defense in San Diego, but the Chargers also used multiple looks. Outside linebackers would often move up to the line and get into a three-point stance to create a four-man front. Pagano is the younger brother of Colts coach Chuck Pagano.
