Cleveland Browns Hire Rob Chudzinski As Next Head Coach

New, comments

The Cleveland Browns have reportedly hired Carolina Panthers head coach Rob Chudzinski, which solidifies Mike Zimmer's return to the Bengals sideline in 2013.

The Cleveland Browns have made their decision.

After interviewing Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, the team up north has decided on their head coach and it favors Bengals fans.

According to multiple reports, the Browns have tabbed Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski as Cleveland's next head coach. More importantly this means that the Cincinnati Bengals avoid another scare with defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, who had reportedly interviewed with the team earlier this week.

Jay Gruden is still in the wind at Arizona and Philadelphia, but for the time being, Zimmer is staying put.
