Jake Mangini asked his dad the other day the question that many Browns fans are also wondering about.
"He asked if we were moving," Eric Mangini said today, referring to his 6-year-old son. "I said, 'Don't worry about it, Jake. We'll figure it out.'"
Mangini will find out soon enough whether the family is pulling up stakes again. He said he expects to meet with team president Mike Holmgren on Monday, a day after the 5-10 Browns complete their season after a home game against the Steelers.
Mangini is 10-21 since taking over the Browns shortly after being fired by the Jets after the 2008 season, in which the team plummeted from 8-3 to 9-7 and failed to make the playoffs with Brett Favre as the quarterback. It was revealed after the season that Favre had suffered a torn biceps that affected his performance late in the year.
The Browns actually beat New Orleans and New England, both of whom are in the playoffs. But since beating the Patriots at home on Nov. 7, the Browns are just 2-5 since.
Mangini has two years remaining on his contract.
"I feel good about a lot of things that we've done here," Mangini said. "I believe in it. I think this organization and this team have a tremendous future, a really bright future, and I'm excited about being a part of that."
