Well, the last week of regular season play has come and gone in the NFL. Personally, I’m looking forward to what the post season has in store for football fans. It’s been an interesting year and the post season is sure to be just as interesting. As for Cleveland Browns fans, it’s not as interesting, and full of rage. The Browns have already fired head coach Rob Chudzinski.
The rumors started pouring in right after I landed back in rainy Cleveland this evening at 5:30. I knew Coach Chud was going to be fired before I new the final score of the game. Seriously? Yes. Seriously. After one season, the Cleveland Browns have sacked their head coach. The Browns organization released a statement:
…We needed to see progress with this football team. We needed to see development and improvement as the season evolved and, unfortunately, we took a concerning step backward in the second half of the year.
You can read the whole statement here, but it won’t make you feel any better as a Browns fan. There’s a press conference tomorrow at 12:30 pm, so we’ll see what they have to say. I’m sure they have someone in mind to replace Chud, the top name flying around is Josh McDaniels, but I guess only time will tell. The Browns select fourth in the 2014 NFL draft, which is in May.
