From the NFL Combine: Rivera talks Chudzinski, Turner

By Pat McManamon

Panthers coach Ron Rivera was the defensive coordinator in San Diego when Norv Turner was the coach and Rob Chudzinski was on the staff.

Rivera said the teaming of the pair with the Browns is “going to be interesting.”

“I think Norv Turner’s one of the sharpest offensive football coaches I’ve ever been around,” Rivera said. “I know Chud’s a sharp mind as well. It’s going to be interesting to see exactly what they try to do and how they want to do it. I would be surprised if they don’t score a lot of points.”

Rivera said Chudzinski’s inclination to offense will slant the team toward that side of the ball.

“He wants to score points,” Rivera said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun to watch them play offensive football.”
