With the Cleveland Browns losing their second straight game to a sub-standard team, this time the 3-10 Cincinnati Bengals, 19-17, the wheels may have been finally greased for Mangini's ouster.
Cleveland may have already begun plans to replace head coach Eric Mangini and perhaps even revamp the entire Cleveland Browns' staff altogether.
While some may say that Mangini hasn't been given a fair shake or hasn't had time to implement his system and get his players, the bottom line is that the NFL is a business and business is all about results.
This slideshow will show a hypothetically revamped and retooled coaching staff for the Browns in 2011. All I can say is that offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll and defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan do not make the cut.
Without further ado, here is the 10 Coaches To Replace Current Browns Staff slideshow.
Currently an ESPN analyst on Monday Night football, the former Oakland Raider and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach, Jon Gruden is the clear favorite among Browns' fans to become the new head coach in 2011.
Gruden would be a perfect fit for the young, up and coming Browns because of his knowledge of the West Coast offense. He has won a Super Bowl and clearly seems to be intrigued by coaching 45 minutes from his hometown of Sandusky.
A young coach like Gruden would be a great benefit for McCoy.
Both Jon Gruden and Browns president, Mike Holmgren, share a long history together going back to Green Bay. I have a feeling that these two men will be setting up a lunch meeting sometime in early 2011.
Another former Mike Holmgren associate and West Coast offense disciple, Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach, Jim Zorn, would be Cleveland's No. 1 target for a new offensive coordinator or head coach if Plan A with Jon Gruden falls through.
Zorn would bring a strong knowledge of other AFC North teams along with experience in developing young quarterbacks such as Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco.
Can you just imagine what Zorn could do with McCoy?
Learning from a former quarterback that has actually played in the NFL would only benefit the future development of the Browns franchise quarterback both on and off the field.
Another former Mike Holmgren associate, Houston Texans assistant defensive backs coach Ray Rhodes has a lot of experience with Mike Holmgren.
Holmgren and Rhodes both worked together in Green Bay from 1992-1993 and again in Seattle from 2003-2007. Rhodes is a favorite to become the Browns' new defensive coordinator.
While current Browns defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan is a fan favorite, Ryan has been rumored to be looking at the Oakland Raiders' job, and with the recent play of his defenses, Ryan may just get his chance in Oakland soon enough.
Not many people may know of Jimmy Robinson, but I'm sure that all NFL fans are very familiar with some of the wide receivers he has helped develop.
Names like Marvin Harrison, Amani Toomer, Ike Hilliard, Jake Horn, Donald Driver and Greg Jennings are certainly names that NFL fans are familiar with. The former NFL wide receiver helped coach them all.
In 1990, Robinson joined the Atlanta Falcons, where he helped develop Andre Rison and Michael Haynes into leading the NFL's touchdown receptions list for a tandem.
The next year he helped Rison and Mike Pritchard lead the league again in that category.
In 1994, Robinson joined the Indianapolis Colts' staff, where he helped launch the career of Marvin Harrison, who would become only the third rookie in club history to lead the team in receiving under Robinson's tutelage.
In 1999, Amani Toomer and Ike Hilliard became the first pair of Giants receivers to combine to surpass 2,000 yards.
In 2001, he helped his unit catch a team-record 186 passes for 2,680 yards and 15 touchdowns.
And most recently in Green Bay, he helped veteran wide-out, Donald Driver get to two Pro Bowls in 2006 and 2007 and also guided Greg Jennings to catch a fourth-best 12 touchdown receptions in 2007.
Clearly, the Browns could use someone like Robinson to develop their anemic wide receiver unit.
The son of former Cleveland Brown assistant, Kirk Ferentz, the 27-year-old Brian Ferentz is the offensive assistant coach of the New England Patriots.
A former offensive lineman at Iowa, Frentz has also helped contribute to the Patriots' success by developing their dynamic duo of tight ends, Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski.
While the Browns have the tight end spot secured, they may want to look at re-evaluating the Browns offensive line, which has been offensive to say the least.
Currently the defensive line coach for the New York Jets, the former defensive back would make a excellent target for new Browns defensive line coach.
Looking at the bad play of the defensive line, Carrier could certainly help the Browns out by lending a steady hand to an otherwise shaky unit.
A former standout linebacker who played for Pittsburgh and Carolina, this Green Bay Packers linebackers coach would make a interesting target for Cleveland in the same role.
Having worked wonders with the talent in Green Bay such as Clay Matthews Jr. and A.J. Hawk, Greene could really teach the Browns linebackers a few things such as tackling fundamentals and containment, something that Cleveland is sorely lacking.
The current running back coach for the New York Jets, Anthony Lynn would be another excellent hire for the Browns in the running backs area.
Lynn, a former Browns assistant, would be returning home and could certainly help in the areas of creating more diversity and expansion in the running game for Cleveland by figuring out a way to develop running back Montario Hardesty and working on Peyton Hillis's fumbling issues.
Having worked with the likes of Brad Smith, New York Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff could find a way to make the Browns special teams special once again.
If there is one area that has been a real letdown for Cleveland this year it's the lack of output from Joshua Cribbs in the punt/kick return game. While teams are shying away from kicking to Cribbs, the rest of the unit has also failed to pick up the slack.
Westhoff is considered a "pioneering special teams coach" as his special teams units are generally ranked very high in the NFL.
The last coach featured in this slideshow is current Green Bay Packers tight ends coach, Ben McAdoo.
Credited with the blossoming and development of All-Pro tight end Jermichael Finley, Cleveland should look at McAdoo to help groom tight ends selected in the draft and work closely alongside Benjamin Watson to become even more of a dominant threat in the Browns passing game.
To conclude this slideshow on possible coaches for 2011, these coaches could fill major roles in Cleveland and were selected based on their familiarity with Holmgren and/or his West Coast Offense.
Other coaches such as linebackers coach, Kevin Greene, running backs coach, Anthony Lynn and tight ends coach, Ben McAdoo could most certainly help out Cleveland in the areas such as tackling fundamentals, running and effectively using the tight end but I feel that the most important coach that the Browns could hire is Packers wide receivers coach, Jimmy Robinson.
After seeing the impressive resume he has working with NFL wide receivers, Robinson would be an interesting hire just to see what he could do with an A.J. Green, Julio Jones or Jon Baldwin. Maybe he could even teach Mohamed Massaqoui and Brian Robiskie a couple of tricks of the trade.
Either way, the upcoming offseason for the Browns promises to be a very West Coast-influenced one.
