It was confirmed Saturday that the Indianapolis Colts hired former Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski to the title of assistant to head coach Chuck Pagano. The two have worked together previously at the University of Miami, where they spent six seasons together.
The “special assistant” title is likely to help with working around his contract with Cleveland, from which he is still over ten millions dollars after being fired after once season there.
Pagano had this to say on the hire ” Rob and I have a long professional relationship and his resume speaks for itself. He bring a wealth of knowledge and will be a tremendous help to our entire team moving forward. Needles to say we’re excited to have “Chud” joining our family.”
Rob’s biggest insight will be on the offensive side of the ball. Where he brought the Brown’s offense to its highest ranking since 1991. Having coached and help develop wide receiver Josh Gordan and tight end Jordan Cameron, into pro bowl players.
Colt’s tight end Colby Fleener and company are in for a treat when “Chud” arrives in Indy. Adding creativity to an offense that already has a wide variety of options and weapons could make the Colts a team not to mess with, and a likely favorite to repeat as AFC South champions.
