CLEVELAND (AP) -- A person familiar with the decision says the Cleveland Browns have hired Carolina offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski as their new coach.
Chudzinski will become the Browns' sixth full-time coach since 1999, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday night on the condition of anonymity because the team has not yet announced the hiring. The 44-year-old Chudzinski has spent the past two seasons with the Panthers. He has had two previous stints with the Browns as an assistant coach.
Chudzinski, who grew up in Ohio and rooted for the Browns as a kid, interviewed with the team on Wednesday. He has spent the past two years working with quarterback Cam Newton.
The Browns have been searching for a coach since firing Pat Shurmur on Dec. 31 after a 5-11 season.

His reported interview with the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday is probably something that should have happened before. If it doesn't work for the Browns, it should happen with one of the five other teams looking to fill a coaching vacancy.
This isn't to say that Zimmer, the Bengals...
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Browns are interviewing former Cardinals head coach Ken Wisenhunt for a second time, today in Cleveland.

Time has determined that Norv Turner is not head coaching material. Turner has a brilliant offensive mind but he has never been successful at keeping the entire show together.
The Cleveland Browns are gambling on Turner’s brilliance shining through in a reduced capacity.

It is that time again Cleveland; the time that we all "love" to "hate". The season has ended, the coaches have been fired, and the team has been sold. It has become a routine here In Cleveland, that every 2-4 years we clean house and start a new regime. Just when ex-coach Pat Shurmur felt that he started to get the ball rolling; new chief in town, Jimmy Haslam...

Nobody could make out what he was discussing, and...

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.
