Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton once famously mentioned that he might put in a suggestion box to figure out the woes that had fallen on the team at one point during this season.  Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski has his own suggestion…he’ll move to Cleveland.

Chudzinski was announced as the new head coach for the Browns late this evening and the other rumor is that he will bring former San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner in as his offensive coordinator.

It’ll be interesting to see who the Panthers bring in as their new offensive coordinator.  Their search should be one that will see Newton have a bit more success in his maturation as an NFL quarterback and not doing the read option every play.

For Chudzinski he’ll be presented with the dilemma that has faced the previous coach Pat Shurmur:  Do you go with Brandon Weeden or give Colt McCoy another chance to be a starter for the Browns?
