The Indianapolis Colts announced today that they hired Rob Chudzinski as special assistant to the head coach after he was fired after one seaso nas the Cleveland Browns head coach.
“Rob and I have a long professional relationship and his résumé speaks for itself,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said in a statement. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and will be a tremendous help to our entire team moving forward. Needless to say, we’re excited to have ‘Chud’ joining our family.”
Chuck Pagano and Rob Chudziski first worked together in 1986, when Pagano was a graduate assistant for the Miami Hurricanes and Chudzinski was a player on the team.
They later spent six seasons together coaching on Miami’s staff. and ironically, they were both on the Browns’ coaching staff in 2004.
Prior to joining the Browns, Chudzinski spent two years (2011-12) as offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers. In 2011, the team set club records for total yards (6,237) and first downs (345), one year after experiencing franchise lows in both categories.
He should be a great fit in Indy and help Andrew Luck continue to make his ascension into the “elite” tier of NFL quarterbacks.
