2013 Rob Chudzinski
Like almost everyone else on this list, Coach Chud had never been a head coach. In fact, he was the offensive coordinator for the 2007 team. Before the Browns decided he was worth a shot as a leading man, he ran the offense for the Carolina Panthers from 2011-2012 that featured a young Cam Newton. But not even Chudzinski could overcome a flawed roster and a terrible quarterback and only managed one season for the Browns after going 4-12. Fans, though, did generally feel like Chudzinski got a raw deal in Cleveland. He actually seemed to have this team moving in the right direction and showed better passion than the previously blah Shurmer. He now runs the offense in Indianapolis.
2014-Present Mike Pettine
Pettine was the defensive coordinator for the Jets and Bills prior to coming to Cleveland. We all should know this by now. But Pettine had also never been in charge of an entire team and has at times in the last two years looked utterly lost and confused on the sidelines. What drives fans even crazier is the lack of emotion or reaction from Pettine during games.
When asked about it at a recent press conference, Pettine admitted that he has broken a head set this year, but he’s “just not that guy”. Pettine was last seen trying to figure out a plan to improve by rolling up his sleeves.
