07:51 AM ET 01.11 | Fired on New Year's Eve, Norv Turner apparently didn't have to wait long to find work. After the Cleveland Browns named Carolina offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski as their new head coach Wednesday night, the Browns have already begun adding to their new coaching staff. According to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports, the Browns are expected to hire former San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner as their new offensive coordinator. ... Chudzinski served as assistant head coach and tight ends coach for the Chargers under Turner from 2009-2010. It will be Turner's fifth stop as an offensive coordinator. Turner was the offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys from 1991-1993, the Chargers in 2001, the [Dolphins] from 2002-2003 and the [49ers] in 2006.

I thought he would end up in Dallas since they don't have an offensive coordinator. Garrett is but he is awful!!

Good luck. As I recall, the Browns don't have much of an offense to coordinate.

Actually, and I can't believe I'm typing this, but, the Browns are heading in the right direction. Finally.

Norv is a good coordinator. Just don't hire him for HC. Then again, they already have a questionable hire there.

Norv made Alex Smith an all pro when he looked like a complete washout.

If there is QB skill to be mined with either Weeden or McCoy, he will mine it. And Trent Richardson is going to have some huge games under Norv.


Good pickup for the Browns.

I'm still not convinced that Alex Smith is not a complete washout. I'm also not convinced that he's not an All Pro.

He is a mystery shrouded in an enigma an served on a bed of Rice-a-Roni.

Chudzininski just needs to let Norv take over the offense and stay the neck out of his way. He would probably know that without having to be told.

I thought he would end up with either the Boys or the Jets.

The Browns sure got some good young players, I wish them well!!!!!

Once you get past their running back, coordinating the offense is pretty much a matter of arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

You need to brush up on your knowledge on Chudzininski... Dude is a great offensive mind that very little people know about... I expect a big improvement from the browns this season..

I don't get it either. HC from a team ranked 19th on offense with a record of 7-9 and a OC from another team that finished 7-9 with the 20th ranked offense. Being a Browns fan must be hard.

I think this is a great pick-up by the Browns. I'm not sure about their HC decision... but Norvy boy has proven to be a heck of an OC in every stop he has made, just a really bad HC.

Yeah, the scheme they ran in Carolina worked out so well for them.
