Plus Cleveland's owner doesn't believe in paying coaches to sit home and chill. that's also part of it. they just spent all their money on Holmgrem. I don't see them having any better success next year. And they still aren't trying to pay Cribbs what he is worth.
Mangini is just holding the line. I guarantee Holmgren has no long term plans for him, He's going to draft guys to fit the WCO this year and get his own guy next year that fits his philosophy while Mangini builds the defense. He's waiting for Gruden who he knows will have the itch by next year. With a possible lock out there may not even be football, so it would be dumb to hire a coach right now.
