In The Region:

Rob Chudzinski has gone from lifelong Browns fan to Browns head coach, and is under a lot of pressure to break a string of losing seasons and fired coaching staffs.

The Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator was formally introduced to the media today  and talked about growing up in Toledo in the 1970s, wearing orange-and-brown jerseys when he was as young as 5 – and  creating his own Browns stadium.

“The memories growing up and going out and throwing the football around --  pretending, believing that I was scoring that touchdown . ... My cousins and I, … we wanted to be in that stadium, in the Dog Pound so bad that we would  watch games in December out in the snow. We’d flip the TV around in the window, and that was (like) us being there, being in the stands and being part of that.”

This is not Chudzinski’s first paid gig with the Browns. He was hired as tight ends coach in 2004, brought back as offensive coordinator in 2007 and fired with the rest of the coaching staff in 2008. The Browns only just finished paying off his four-year contract extension in 2011.

Chudzinski new contract is reportedly worth $3 million a year for five years.
