Last Night was Rob Chudzinski’s last game as the coach for the Cleveland Browns.
Back in 2012 Chudzinski was regarded by many YouWager bettors as one of the bright young coaches in the league and a according to CEO Joe Banner he he had his eye on for a long time. How, Cleveland has let him go after one season as coach.
The Browns still owe Chudzinski $10.5 million, according to NFL sources.
A seven-game losing streak to end the football season and a 4-12 overall mark didn’t make anyone happy.
The Browns released a statement with the announcement.
“We appreciate Chud’s passion for the Browns, and we have great respect for him both personally and professionally,” the statement, which was not attributed to any person, read. “We needed to see progress with this football team. We needed to see development and improvement as the season evolved and, unfortunately, we took a concerning step backward in the second half of the year.
“Our fans deserve to see a consistently competitive team. We have high standards, and there’s an urgency for success. When we believed we were not positioned to achieve significant progress in 2014, we knew we had to admit that a change was needed, and move forward.
This is the third time Cleveland has gotten rid of Chudzinski, who grew up a Brown fan in Toledo, Ohio.
Chudzinski coached the team tight ends for Butch Davis in 2004, and then returned to the team in ’07, when he served two NFL seasons as offensive coordinator under Romeo Crennel.
