Former Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini is officially back in the NFL: ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports this afternoon that the San Francisco 49ers organization has hired the 42-year-old as the team’s Senior Offensive Consultant. Eric Mangini is taking job as 49ers Senior Offensive Consultant. Sent from my iPhone — Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) June 1, 2013 Mangini has been out of the NFL since being fired by the Browns following the 2010 season. He had a 10-22 record in his two seasons with the club, then was replaced by Pat Shurmur, who last just two seasons. Mangini also was 23-25 in his three previous years with the New York Jets. Most recently, Mangini has been serving as an analyst for ESPN, where he had been receiving very positive reviews both on TV and radio. But previously this offseason, there had been some murmurs of the possibility of him returning to the NFL in some official capacity, with the 49ers as a likely fit. Mangini will be joining former Browns kicker Phil Dawson and backup quarterback Colt McCoy in the city by the bay. [Related: Eric Mangini: TV and Radio Star?]
