12:49 PM ET 01.18 | When the Cleveland Browns gave head coach Rob Chudzinski the boot at the end of the season, there were a lot of hurt feelings and even more confusion. But after some time has passed, Chudzinski isn't going to just sit around for a year and count his cash, he's going to get back into the coaching game in 2014. That's the implication at least with word that the Baltimore Ravens have set their sights on possibly hiring Chudzinski to fill their offensive coordinator vacancy. Jim Caldwell's departure for the head coaching job with the Detroit Lions left an offensive coordinator-sized hole on John Harbaugh's staff. So far there have been names mentioned in connection to the job, but no one has been officially offered the position. Norv Turner was on the Ravens' radar before the Vikings went after him, and Kyle Shanahan has been interviewed as well.

Pretty embarrassing when you can't even get spam right!

Sure, why not? Things worked out so well in Cleveland.

The last sentence just blows my mind: People are still looking at Kyle Shannahan????

Why on God's green earth would anyone hire him as OC? Because his O did well 2 seasons ago with a healthy RG3 running a passe offense?

The Vikings interviewed him but were more interested in Norv Turner...

Da Chudz as offensive coordinator. VS Cleveland sounds Good!!! Twice a year!

Correction:

Two reporters said the Vikings were interested in him. He wasn't interviewed.

Translation: unless you have a twitter pic of Kyle at the MSP airport (like there was with Turner), then we really don't know.

I'm of the opinion that if you need payback as a motivator to do better, then you're in the wrong business. But in this case I'm fine with it. Cleveland lubed him with peanut butter.

Anything leading to a 0 - 16 for Cleveland sounds good. How about LaLaBron for tight end..

January 18, 2014  08:09 PM ET

Norv got the job.

January 18, 2014  08:09 PM ET

In Minn that is. Hard to figure how these retreads keep going

You confuse OC vs HC.

You should watch football. It's entertaining.

Aaaand I'm now dropping my PB&J sandwich in the waste basket...

Turner is a good OC, as HC, not so much.

Shanahan would be fantastic in Baltimore. But then I don't especially like the Ravens.

When was Norv a good OC? Before he became a head coach? Time may have passed him by. Nice job with the Browns last season though. Right.
