Time for change in Cleveland
With new team president Mike Holmgren due to arrive next week and planning to hire a general manager, Mangini said he wouldn't be opposed to a hierarchy that would place him below two football executives.
Mangini, who is expected to meet with Holmgren early next week, reiterated that he's in favor of adding anyone who can help the Browns.
"You get smart people, looking to do the same thing, committed to the same thing, it's great," the coach said Wednesday
Holmgren signed a five-year deal and said he will not decide Mangini's fate until after they meet. Holmgren said he will evaluate the whole season, not just Cleveland's current three-game winning streak.
