Chudzinski interviewing for Browns head coaching job

Carolina offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski will interview with the Cleveland Browns for their head coaching position, a source close to Chudzinski told the Observer's Joe Person on Wednesday.

The interview comes a day sources confirmed Chudzinski's job with the Panthers would be safe. The interview with the Browns was first reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Chudzinski, who just finished his second year as offensive coordinator of the Panthers, served as the Browns offensive coordinator from 2007-08. He was also the tight end coach there in 2004.

The Browns fired head coach Pat Shurmur on Dec. 31 and have since interviewed a number of candidates. The report also has the Browns interviewing Cincinnati defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.

Chudzinski interviewed with Jacksonville, St. Louis and Tampa Bay last year, ultimately not being selected for any of the positions.
