Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski is interviewing to be the head coach in Cleveland, according to The Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.
Losing Chudzinski would be a blow to the Panthers. He was viewed as a big reason why Cam Newton had a record-setting rookie season. Chudzinski also made some nice adjustments to get Newton back on track in the second half of the 2012 season.
If Chudzinski ends up leaving, quarterbacks coach Mike Shula might be a logical candidate to take his place. But head coach Ron Rivera is close to former San Diego coach Norv Turner, who has a strong history as an offensive coordinator.
