This final week of the NFL season is a time when head coaches around the NFL are either counting their blessings, fighting for playoff spot or praying that they won’t be fired. But it’s not everyday that you see a first year head coach on the hot seat, which seems to be the case in Cleveland with Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski.
Despite being in his first season as coach of the Cleveland Browns, ESPNCleveland reporter Tony Grossi is reporting that there are some bad vibes around Cleveland that suggest Chudzinski could be a surprise firing this week.
There are some bad vibes indicating uncertainty about the future of #Browns HC Rob Chudzinski. Incredible.

This in no way indicates that Chudzinski will be fired on Black Monday but it’s certainty not a positive report on his future with the team. It’s truly hard to judge Chudzinski based off the season he’s had where not only one quarterback has gone down but multiple quarterbacks and other players have gone down with injury.
It would be truly shocking to see the Browns fire Chudzinski after one season, but they could be thinking about promoting offensive coordinator Norv Turner to the head coaching position. Nothing is imminent either way, but it’s mont good that the vibe is back to being bad in Cleveland.
