Bud Carson

Bud Carson

Bud Carson was brought in as head coach after Marty Schottenheimer and Art Modell "mutually parted ways" at the end of the 1988 season. Carson had a reputation as a defensive genious, a Buddy Ryan protoge, and someone who would hire an offensive coordinator. Carson took a Marty-built team to the AFC Championship Game his first year, despite a 9-6-1 record (incidentally, the tie came against the Schottenheimer-led Chiefs). After getting crushed by Denver in that game, Cleveland promptly fell apart in '90, going 2-7 before Carson got the axe and was replaced by Jim Shoffner. Carson went back to the assistant ranks, and his most recent assignment was the St. Louis Rams in 2000.
