49ers Considering Eric Mangini for QB Coach


According to CSNBayArea.com the 49ers may look to hire Eric Mangini as the QB coach if current OC Greg Roman leaves for another team. Roman’s name has been in the mix for several coaching positions, but it’s interesting that the 49ers would want Mangini as the QB coach and not the OC.

Former NFL head coach Eric Mangini, who served as 49ers senior offensive consultant this season, was considered for a move to quarterbacks coach, sources told CSNBayArea.com on Wednesday.

One source said moving Mangini to quarterbacks coach and promoting quarterbacks coach Geep Chryst to offensive coordinator was an option for coach Jim Harbaugh’s reshuffling of the coaching staff if the 49ers lost offensive coordinator Greg Roman. The source said he does not believe Harbaugh plans to make any changes.
