In addition to Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, the Cleveland Browns are interviewing Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski for their head coaching vacancy Wednesday.

Chudzinski, as many may recall, is partly responsible for turning Derek Anderson into a Pro Bowler as the offensive coordinator under Romeo Crennel. Prior to his stint as OC, he was the tight ends coach in 2004. A Toledo native, Chudzinski was relieved of his duties once Eric Mangini came to town and had three head coaching interviews last offseason alone.
Most recently, his tight end-friendly vertical passing attack has been featured in Carolina with Cam Newton. The Panthers, in 2012, were 19th in total offense, amassing 22.3 points per game.
