Eric Mangini is in talks with the 49ers (consultant job) *EDIT - HIRED*

This. Mangini has proven that he's not head coach material....beyond that, he's a very good position coach and has terrific football mind. As a bonus, if he ends up with a permanent position on the staff, you don't have to worry about him running off and taking a head coaching position somewhere after his disasters in New York and Cleveland.

I think Mangini is capable and has an opportunity to rebuild his 'reputation' with the Niners. We have seen other coaches get repeated opportunities despite some bad failures. Ed Donatell is a bit like that right now.

He can rebuild it.....I don't see anyone ever giving him a head coaching gig again though.
sounds like a one year interview for DC
I hope he joins the staff...could take over as DC in the future

Vic is eventually going to be the next hot item for HC in college or NfL

I mentioned Ed Donatell without realizing he was with the Jets Mangini's staff as special assistant back in 2007-8. All these coaches knew each other at one point or another. Maybe Ed Donatell is returning the favor for Mangini.

Still holds the sack record at Wesleyan as NT...perhaps he will be working on our erstwhile Rookie DLs? Also coached Super Bowl winning DB group in NE. Talented guy and never a bad thing to have more brain power on the staff.

I was surprised to learn that compared o the rest of the NFC west we have the least amount of assistant at 17, while Seattle and rams have like 21 or 22 assistants.
Never cared for his HC style and all the drama that went with it.

BUT, Baalke/JH tend to make very smart moves and since we don't know all the ins & outs of why and how they'll apply his skills, I think it's pretty good.

quality of quantity
Played NT and is rumored to possibly work with OLinemen...if he can help the line become as good at pass blocking as they are run blocking this team will take another step.
