Browns to fire Chudzinski

The SportsXchange

Rob Chudzinski will be fired after just one season as head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

Multiple outlets reported Chudzinski was in dire straits before FOX's Jay Glazer said Sunday night that the coach demanded a Monday meeting with team decision-makers be moved up to Sunday night.

The Browns are expected to announce the firing sometime early this week, according to the report. Chudzinski was surprised when asked if he heard reports that he would be fired.

"No. We haven't had any of those type of discussions. The next week we'll look and start reviewing the season and looking at every aspect of the program and doing those evaluations," he said.

The Browns issued a statement in the middle of the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"Our focus is on the game today. We will not discuss any evaluation of the season until this upcoming week," the statement read.

Chudzinski, who was hired last January to replace fired Pat Shurmur, finished with a 4-12 record in his one season with the Browns, including a 20-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. He wouldn't say whether he felt he deserved another chance in Cleveland.

"I'm not getting into any of that. Like I said, we'll talk this week," he said Sunday.

The Browns had an unsettled situation at quarterback throughout the season. Three different players started games at quarterback for the Browns: Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell.

Chudzinski was under fire for a "lack of decisiveness and players not being held accountable," according to NFL Network.

Chudzinski became the seventh Browns' head coach in 15 years when he accepted the position.
