After building a top-10 offense in 2014, former Browns head coach and current Colts assistant Rob Chudzinski is a hot target for coaching staffs.
The Indianapolis Colts are keeping offensive assistant Rob Chudzinski and are not granting requests from other teams to let him interview with them.

In 2013, Chudzinski was hired to be the head coach of the Cleveland Browns but could only eke out four wins with a roster that didn’t have any consistency at the QB position. He was fired after one year on the job along with GM Michael Lombardi by owner Jimmy Haslam, who decided to blow up the front office after one season. He joined the Indianapolis Colts as an offensive assistant
Chudzinski, who has had more success developing TEs than almost any other assistant in the NFL, has developed such stars as Antonio Gates, Kellen Winslow II, Greg Olsen and Jordan Cameron, as well as current Colts blue-chippers such as Cody Fleener and Dwayne Allen.
While the Colts are under no obligation to let Chudzinski leave, his contract only lasts for one more week – which means if they don’t reach a new deal with him they will no longer be able to prevent him from moving on.
