The Cleveland Browns have dismissed Rob Chudzinski, after only one season as the team's head coach.

The Browns ended the year on a seven-game losing streak, and ended the season with a 4-12 record.

The 45-year old Chudzinski, who previously served as tight ends coach of the Browns back in 2004, and then as offensive coordinator of the team from 2007-2008, was hired away from the Carolina Panthers, where he served as offensive coordinator from 2011-2012.

Chudzinski replaced Pat Shurmur, who was let go less than a year ago.

The Browns, who haven't qualified for the NFL playoffs since 2002, and who haven't won more than five games in each of the last six years, will now be searching for their fifth head coach over the past seven seasons.
