Chudzinski, 43, is in his first year with the Panthers as offensive coordinator. He is credited by many as being the architect to orchestrate Cam Newton’s record breaking rookie season in which he threw for 4051 yards and collected 14 rushing touchdowns.

Chudzinski also previously served as the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns from 2007-08. He has no upper-level head coaching experience. Longtime former Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher is currently the frontrunner for the position with the Rams. It is believed he will make a decision between St. Louis and the Miami Dolphins by next week.
