Eric Mangini will reportedly have a new role on the 49ers’ coaching staff.

Mangini, who was a senior offensive consultant with San Francisco in 2013, will coach the club’s tight ends in 2014, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported Thursday.

Reggie Dunn, who coached the 49ers’ tight ends the last three seasons, will fill the club’s vacancy at assistant offensive line coach, the Bee reported.

Mangini is in his second season with the 49ers. He was the Jets’ head coach from 2006 through 2008 and the Browns’ head coach from 2009 through 2010.

    The best possible coaching news the Niner Faithful could get this season is if Greg Roman gets replaced.

    Looks like someone’s gone down in the world.

    Who’s got it better than Santa Clara? The reigning world champion Seattle Seahawks!

    Good for Mangini! He cut his teeth as a defensive coach, and after getting fired twice as a HC (as a defense guy) he’s moved to the offensive side of the ball. Not many people do that. If he can show competence and move up through the ranks he may one day be an excellent head coach.

    So let me get this straight.

    The 49ers hire Mangini, the former Head Coach of the Browns, who hasn’t even been able to get a Coordinator gig as TE Coach.

    Then one day later, apparently from a source with connections between the Browns and 49ers, leaks a story that might help push the current 49ers head coach out the door.

    Gee, if Mangini had a history of stabbing his head coaches in the back I’d wonder….
