Is Rob Chudzinski The Right Hire for the Cleveland Browns? (POLL)

The Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator is now the head coach of the Cleveland Browns.

Many Cleveland Browns fans were left scratching their heads Thursday night as the team announced the hiring of Rob Chudzinski as head coach.

Chudzinksi was the offensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers for the past two years and was an assistant coach with the Browns twice with stints in 2004 and 2007, according to ESPN.com.

With Chudzinkski as the new head coach, sources say he will bring former San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner with him as the offensive coordinator, The Plain Dealer reports. Turner was fired by the Chargers after the season ended.

This is a dream job for the new coach, who grew up a die-hard Browns fan in Toledo and followed the team as a kid.

Many fans are wondering what happened to the big names after whom owner Jimmy Haslem was going originally. After Chip Kelly decided to stay at Oregon, names like , Marc Trestmen and Mike Zimmer were tossed around and most were interviewed.

What do you think of the Browns sixth full-time coach since 1999? Sound off and tell us your thoughts in the comments section below.

Rob is considered, by the ones who know, an offensive genius in this league. He was responsible for scoring some 80 touchdowns last season compared to the 44 Cleveland scored. Rob, 44 years old, is at his upswing of his career and he is NOT a dinosaur. Very good choice; better than any college coach.
