Me personally, I don't think Mangini should be the guy. Honestly, I'm not sure anyone on the roster would give me any kind of confidence that he could replace Harbaugh. There's been talk about Tomsula, but as much as I think he's a great coach, I'm not 100% sure he's HC material.
Former Bronco tight end Nate Jackson wrote a book titled Slow Getting Up. In it he talks about being invited to Browns camp after being released by Denver. He has some very choice words for Mangini and paints a picture of Mangini being a substandard head coach with poor leadership. No, Jackson didn't make the team and maybe he harbors some hard feelings because of it, but if Mangini is anything like the book portrays id rather have Singletary back.
Harbaugh gets to pick his coaching staff.
I may not understand the hiring of Mangini, but I am sure Harbaugh does.
I do not think the presence of Mangini rates as a mid-major concern, or even a D2 concern.
It is more like an NAIA level concern.
