BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns' decision to fire head coach Rob Chudzinski was one even the city's sports gurus didn't anticipate.
Fox 8's John Telich said as recently as a week ago, local sports reporters and analysts joked that despite the team's record, the city wouldn't have to ride the coaching merry-go-round this year.
They were wrong.
Telich said the rumblings started Sunday morning that Chudzinski's short time with the Browns would end that day.
Hours after a loss to the Steelers, Chudzinksi was fired.
In a telephone report Monday morning, Telich offered his insight about the team's decision and what the future may hold for the Browns.
He said he expected the organization to move quickly to find Chudzinski's replacement, and tossed out a few prospective coaches.
"We've heard the name (Josh) McDaniels, we've heard Bill O'Brien," Telich said.
McDaniels, an offensive coordinator for New England, is a Canton McKinley High School alumnus who has worked with Browns GM Mike Lombardi and QB Brian Hoyer.
Telich also mentioned O'Brien's work with Penn State, crediting him for what he has made of the team in just two years.
"I think Haslam is just absolutely going to go full speed ahead and try to get (a coach) nailed down as soon as possible," Telich speculated.
In a news release, the Browns said "there's an urgency for success" and the team was "not positioned to achieve significant progress in 2014."
