Mangini Emerging As Favorite To Land In Cleveland

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Terry Pluto, Eric Mangini is at the “center” of the Browns’ conversation to be their next head coach. The Browns seem to want Mangini to be their coach even more than Scott Pioli to be GM. Pluto and ESPN’s John Clayton both say Mangini and Pioli still get along despite their past Spygate differences. Ideally, Mangini and Pioli would come in a package deal, but there is belief that Pioli may stay in New England for one more year.
