The Cleveland Browns have fired head coach Rob Chudzinski, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday night.

The news follows reports earlier Sunday that suggested Chudzinski would be fired after just one season with the Browns. Other reports indicated that a final decision might not be made until Monday.

The Browns went 4-12 in Chudzinski’s first — and apparently only — season as head coach. Cleveland finished out its season on Sunday with a 20-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Browns lost seven consecutive games to end the season, and 10 of their last 11.
