When the Cleveland Browns gave head coach Rob Chudzinski the boot at the end of the season, there was a lot of hurt feelings and even more confusion. But after some time has passed, Chudzinski isn’t going to just sit around for a year and count his cash, he’s going to get back into the coaching game in 2014.
That’s the implication at least with word that the Baltimore Ravens have set their sights on possibly hiring Chudzinski to fill their offensive coordinator vacancy.
Jim Caldwell leaving to become the new head coach of the Detroit Lions left a hole on John Harbaugh’s staff at offensive coordinator. So far there have been names mentioned in connection to the job, but no one has been officially offered the position. Norv Turner was on the Ravens radar before the Vikings went after him, and Kyle Shanahan has been interviewed as well.
Chudzinski got the head coaching job in Cleveland thanks to his work with Cam Newton during his rookie season, as the less successful second year was largely overlooked. The Ravens need a sharp offensive mind to come in and work with Joe Flacco and the offense, and it appears that Chudzinski is on the list.
