                  === Niners add Mangini to coaching staff ===
 
 Santa  Clara, CA  (Sports Network) - The San Francisco 49ers have hired former
 New  York Jets  and  Cleveland Browns  head  coach Eric  Mangini  as a  senior
 offensive consultant.
 
 Mangini  had been out  of football since being fired by the Browns following a
 5-11  season in 2010, having served the past two years as a studio analyst for
 ESPN.
 
 The  42-year-old led  the Jets to a  surprising 10-6 record and an AFC playoff
 appearance  during his first  year at the helm in 2006, but New York failed to
 reach  the  postseason in the subsequent  two campaigns while going 13-19 over
 that span. Mangini was fired by the Jets after the team lost five of its final
 six games following an 8-3 start in 2008.
 
 Mangini resurfaced as the Browns' head coach the next year, but managed a pair
 of five-win seasons before being let go by then-president Mike Holmgren.
 
 Prior  to taking  over the  Jets,  Mangini spent  six seasons  as a  defensive
 assistant  under Bill  Belichick in New England  and was a part of three Super
 Bowl champion teams with the Patriots.
