In a bit of a shocking move, the Cleveland Browns hired Rob Chudzinski as their new head coach.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen broke the news:
Rob Chudzinksi is a done deal. He is the Browns new head coach. Confirmed.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) January 11, 2013
Chudzinski, who served as offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers during the past two seasons, serves as an intriguing hire.
He has no head coaching experience, but the 44-year-old is an up-and-coming name in the coaching ranks and completely resurrected Carolina's offense over the past two years.
Will he bring a similar transformation to Cleveland, or will the Browns continue to live in mediocrity?
Let's take a look at some of the best- and worst-case scenarios for "Chud" in his first season as a head coach.
