Coaching is a 24/7 job during the season, our defensive staff doesnt have time to sit in and consult on game plans and adjustments for offensive meetings. He is the best defensive mind available willing to take a "consultant" position for offense.
The media wants to speculate because thats what they do, Fangio isnt going anywhere he is attached to Harbaugh at the hip. Not that Mangini is anywhere close to Bellicheck in head coaching ability, but the patriots offense took off when Bellicheck started getting involved with the offense during McDaniels first tenure with the pats and has stayed at that level ever since.
Another way to look at it, this could be as much of a learning experience for Harbaugh as it could be for Mangini. Harbaugh can learn even more about defense while still being more involved in the offense.
