The reports coming out of the Cleveland Browns' Berea, Ohio, complex state head coach Eric Mangini can stop updating his resume; his job is safe for one more year.
Mike Holmgren, president of football operations, made the call Thursday afternoon, holding to his promise to have Mangini's fate settled by the end of the week.
While this move is considered surprising by some, especially those with an agenda against Mangini, it makes sense when you take a step back and look at the big picture.
Mangini has been a polarizing figure, no doubt about that, but if you are going to judge a coach on one season, you have to look at the entire season, good and bad, and that's what Holmgren has done.
For those people concerned about Joshua Cribbs, read my article about that situation and realize now that the Mangini situation is settled, Holmgren now can focus on getting a general manager and getting the Cribbs deal done.
