Eric Mangini Is Bringing His Winning Personality To ESPN
Despite the fact that ESPN once indadvertedly celebrated him getting fired by the Cleveland Browns, Eric Mangini has signed on with the network to be an NFL studio analyst this fall, according to an ESPN press release.
Mangini will appear on NFL Live, SportsCenter, First Take and other programs throughout the year in addition to contributing analysis on ESPN Radio and other platforms. He is scheduled to start on Wednesday, August 17.
The news may come as a bit of a surprise, as no one has ever accused Mangini of being the most personable person in the world. He's also feuded with coaches and players alike over the course of his career, and not in the cool way that Charles Barkley and Shaq would feud with people, but in a more awkward, uncomfortable way.
One thing that works in Mangini's favor: he's not shy with sharing his football knowledge. Just last January in the New York Post, Mangini published a blueprint to beating the New England Patriots, a team that his Browns team had surprised and blown out earlier in the year. The Jets apparently followed said blueprint, and they went on to beat the Patriots later that week in the playoffs.
