Mangini leaves Browns facility without speaking to reporters

CLEVELAND -- Eric Mangini drove away from the Cleveland Browns' headquarters. It's not known if he's coming back.

The embattled coach left the team facility at 5:35 p.m. on Wednesday evening after presumably having his big meeting with new team president Mike Holmgren. As he drove away, Mangini did not stop to speak with reporters outside.

A team spokesman would not confirm if Mangini, who is fighting for his job, got to make his case to Holmgren.

On Tuesday, his first day running the Browns, Holmgren said Mangini had a legitimate shot of returning for a second season in Cleveland. Holmgren wants to make a decision about Mangini's future by the end of the week.

Holmgren did interview Philadelphia general manager Tom Heckert for Cleveland's vacant GM opening.
