Well, this wasn’t a surprise, was it? Eric Mangini was let go today from the Cleveland Browns. Browns president Mike Holmgren made the announcement today, saying Mangini was a great guy, but he had “high expectations and I’m not going to settle. I’m just not going to settle.” Mangini was 10-22 in two seasons with the Browns.
No, he won’t settle. After seeing how he and General Manager Ron Wolf turned the Packers around starting in 1991, I have no doubt he is looking for the right fit personality-wise as well as someone that can win. While Mangini shared Holmgren’s toughness with discipline, he couldn’t translate that to wins on the field.
