Report: 49ers might hire Mangini as consultant

The SportsXchange

Former New York Jets and Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini is in discussions with the 49ers about becoming a consultant.

CBS first reported that Mangini, who was 33-57 as a head coach in stints with the Jets (2006-08) and Browns (2009-2010), was a candidate to join the NFC champions.

His role will largely be focused on assisting the offense in strategy sessions and game-planning for certain defenses.
