DAVIE (CBSMiami) – If the Miami Dolphins decide to make a change with the team’s offensive coordinator, a potential home-run hire just became available with ties to South Florida.

The Cleveland Browns shocked most players and fans when the team fired first-year head coach Rob Chudzinski late Sunday night. The Browns were 4-12, but players were devastated and called the organization “a joke” and “so dysfunctional” after the decision was announced.

If the name rings a bell for South Florida sports fans, it’s because “Chud” as he’s affectionately known, was a coach and coordinator at the University of Miami from 1994-2003. He was in charge of the 2001 Canes offense that won the 2001 national championship.

Chud has worked wonders with tight ends in the NFL and took the Cleveland Browns offense to the top of the league in 2007. He also took the league’s worst offense in 2010 and turned it into a top 10 outfit with a rookie quarterback in Carolina in 2011.

At 45, Chud would be a logical fit for the Dolphins offense that has struggled to find any sort of identity in the last decade, if the Fins’ job becomes available.

Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said no changes to the staff are going to be made in the short-term and when asked about whether he could fire his friend Sherman; Philbin refused to answer the question.
