While may people are in fact ready to move on from Mangini, I am not. I want to get that bias out of the way before I continue on as I am sure it would get brought up at some point in the comments (if I get any). Having said that one interesting aspect of a coaching change that has not yet been brought up in any threads I've seen crossed my mind today: Who's to say a top tier coaching candidate would want to come here?
I understand we would all like to see the Cleveland Browns as a dream job for a coach, but with our lack of recent success and a sub-par overall roster it is not a sure thing a great coach would want to come here. Especially when you consider the other jobs that may be available.
Dallas, San Francisco, Miami (rumors running rampant that Sparano is out), Tennessee, Houston, Minnesota, possibly the Giants if they fail to make the playoffs. Thats a pretty sizeable market of competition right there. I doubt any of us could argue that the Browns are closer to a title then the Vikings, Giants, or even Cowboys. Arguments could be made to choose Cleveland over the other locations, and I didnt even factor in the Bengals or Bronco's.
I for one would rather give Mangini another year minimum then end up settling for a John Fox.
