Eric Mangini will be the head coach of the Browns next season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. New team president Mike Holmgren made the decision Thursday, exactly one year after Mangini was hired by Cleveland.
Holmgren will also allow Mangini’s entire coaching staff to remain with the team.
Mangini led the Browns to a 5-11 record this season, and won his last four games of the season, a streak that likely saved his job while at the same time giving Cleveland a worse draft pick. In his career, Mangini has one winning season in four years as a head coach, and a 28-36 record overall.
