Holmgren undecided on Mangini
BEREA, Ohio (AP) – New Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren has not decided if coach Eric Mangini will be back next season.
Holmgren, who signed a five-year contract to try and fix the Browns, said he will wait until he arrives in Cleveland next week before making any changes. Holmgren plans to meet with Mangini after the Browns (4-11) complete their season. He said it would not be fair to discuss Mangini’s status with one game left.
The 61-year-old Holmgren said he will evaluate the entirety of Mangini’s first season in Cleveland, and won’t decide based solely on the team’s current three-game winning streak.
Holmgren did not reveal his intentions to reconfigure Cleveland’s front-office, but the former Green Bay and Seattle coach said he plans to hire a general manager.
