Browns Schedule an Interview w/ Eric Mangini

From: Pro Football

To the extent that some league insiders believe that Eric Mangini’s involvement in the blowing of the whistle on the Patriots after he parlayed his time there into a head-coaching job would disqualify him from future employment in the NFL, none of those league insiders own the Cleveland Browns.

Because Browns owner Randy Lerner will be interviewing Eric Mangini for the team’s vacant head-coaching position, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Mangini’s NFL career started with the Browns (i.e., Ravens) in 1994, as a ballboy and a P.R. assistant.

Theoretically, Mangini could be reunited in Cleveland with Pats V.P. of player personnel Scott Pioli, whom Lerner is considering for the G.M. job.

The great unknown in all of this is the status of the relationship between Mangini and Pioli after the 2007 Spygate fiasco. Pioli also would have to take into account the potential impact of any collaboration with Mangini on Pioli’s legacy in New England.

    Get Pioli signed and let him decide on the coach. Mangini, did about as well as RAC did. Still would love to pick up Wade Phillips as DC if let go by Dallas. We do need someone to instill some fire, pride and DISCIPLINE to this team. We really are not too far off with the talent, some killer linebackers who can put some heat on QBs and get some sacks to help out the DBs. Rogers can’t do it alone, the team needs that one Player who the opposition just does not want to run into, to give this Defense and team some sort of identity!

    I would rather have Eric as DC……

    And it looks like that might be a better way to go.

    After we get Pioli…….he will decide who the HC will be ultimately.

    But honestly , the folks from the Belichek tree haven’t fared well away from New England…..
    * Romeo…..obviously

    * Weis…….( Notre Dame )

    *Mangini……( Jets )

    But things can change, who knows. But there are other routes to go if the Pioli / Mangini things don’t pan out.

    * Shottenheimer still available

    * Brian Billick…….

    * Mariucci………

    ……just to name a couple.
