Eric Mangini is back in the NFL, having taken a job with the 49ers.
We noted a couple weeks ago that Mangini becoming a consultant with the 49ers was a possibility, and now Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that it’s official: Mangini is taking a job in San Francisco with a title of Senior Offensive Consultant.
The 42-year-old Mangini has been out of the NFL since he was fired as the Browns’ head coach following the 2010 season. He has most recently been working as an analyst on ESPN.
Before taking over the Browns in 2009, Mangini was the coach of the Jets from 2006 to 2008. He was an assistant to Bill Belichick in New England from 2000 to 2005 and has also been an assistant for the Jets and Ravens.
