BEREA, OH (WOIO) -

Browns have fired Head Coach Rob Chudzinski after one season, according to a press release sent out by the team Sunday night. 

The release came after a dismal 4-12 season. 

The team said in a statement, "We appreciate Chud's passion for the Browns, and we have great respect for him both personally and professionally. We needed to see progress with this football team. We needed to see development and improvement as the season evolved and, unfortunately, we took a concerning step backward in the second half of the year."

"Our fans deserve to see a consistently competitive team. We have high standards, and there's an urgency for success. When we believed we were not positioned to achieve significant progress in 2014, we knew we had to admit that a change was needed, and move forward."

The team cited the fans, saying they are "committed to bringing them the winning football team they deserve."

The Browns have called a press conference for 12:30 p.m. at the team's training facility to discuss the decision to relieve Coach Chudzinski. 19 Action News will carry the presser live.
