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.
