Trent Richardson looks forward to meeting coach 'Chud'

They've never met before, but Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson is looking forward to meeting his new head coach Rob Chudzinski hopefully soon.

"I like what [Chudzinski] did with (Carolina QB) Cam (Newton)," Richardson said, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "He got those boys to ball. Cam was successful in [Chudzinski's] offense. He's an offense guy, and that's another good thing."

Owner Jimmy Haslam and his team finally made a decision on a head coach after considering several options to replace fired coach Par Shurmur. They're still in the hunt for a GM.

"I'm like everyone else, I'm happy [the search] is over with," Richardson said.

He also anticipates getting back to full health after dealing with a rib injury that slowed him down in 2012.

"I'm just looking forward to getting back and working out for real," he said. "Because of my injury, I haven't been able to lift hard with my upper body for 12 weeks. I'm ready to get back at it."
