I find it a little odd that this report is coming out of Boston, but WEEI (their 850 AM) has the following:
WEEI’s Michael Holley is reporting that Eric Mangini will be named the new head coach of the Cleveland Browns by the end of the week. Mangini would replace Romeo Crennel, who like Mangini was a former Patriots defensive coordinator under Bill Belichick. [...] Holley also reports that Pats G.M. Scott Pioli will not follow Mangini to Cleveland, likely heading to Kansas City or staying put in Foxboro.
Reportedly, Holley has personal ties to Mangini. Alas, those that took the 1/3 odds on Scott Pioli coming to Cleveland appear to have quite the sunk cost. Also, those that said you’ll be selling your tickets come a Mangini hire – especially prior to hiring a GM first – please feel free to contact me at any time. If you need a refresher on Eric, we got you covered.
