Are Coaches Contacting Chudzinski About the Browns' Job?

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, one of the deterrents to enticing candidates for the Cleveland Browns' head coaching vacancy? Former head coach Rob Chudzinski, who was fired after just one year:

Rapoport's colleague, Albert Breer, supported the notion of Cleveland's front office being radioactive:

Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer refuted Rapoport's report a little bit later, though:

It's tough to say which report is true. On one hand, I think Cabot's report makes sense, because it would seem wise for a Chudzinski, potentially looking for another job, to have his name associated with being a guy who throws his former employers under the bus. On the other hand, this is an exception where Cleveland's front office is being viewed as erratic for ditching Chudzinski after just one season, which makes Rapaport's report seem believable.

Either way, in the whole grand scheme of things, I don't think what Chudzinski says will make a difference. How the Browns handled this situation is evident to everyone around the country, insiders and fans included, so it really comes down to whether the coordinator is willing to take the risk of a short-term job in Cleveland, or if they'd rather wait for a more patient front office in another year.
