MT: Eric Mangini Bolsters 49ers Staff

Posted by Taylor Price on June 5, 2013 – 11:58 AM

The 49ers haven’t had much turnover in the coaching ranks since Jim Harbaugh signed a five-year contract in February of 2011.

That’s not to say the coaching staff can’t be improved mid-offseason. Harbaugh’s staff received a boost on Tuesday with the announcement of veteran coach Eric Mangini joining the 49ers as a senior offensive consultant.

Mangini has 15 years of NFL coaching experience and is looking to become a head coach once more after stints with the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns.

For now, San Francisco’s new consultant is focused on growing his offensive knowledge. Mangini comes to the 49ers with plenty of defensive awareness. In his new role, he’ll use his defensive background to help the 49ers offensive coaches scheme against opposing teams and understand how the opponent will attack.

Jim Harbaugh felt like the hiring of Mangini makes the 49ers “better” in 2013.

Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle shared five examples of how Mangini can help the team.

    its good to hear that kyle williams will be “full speed ahead” at training camp,he might also get some work in with the 2’s and 3’s during the upcoming mandatory camps,he needs to establish himself with kap as well as the young kids who have had all off-season to work with kap. and I have heard nothing but great things about boldin.he is running hard and giving our cb’s fits during o.t.a.’s,,he wants another ring and its quite obvious the guy thinks we can win it all this year, I also happen to believe that he might feel a bit slighted about being traded for a 6th round draft pick after the post season numbers he put up..those are the kind of guys harbaugh and baalke like, the,”chip on my shoulder” guys,,IN HARBAUGH WE TRUST

    So mini camp is when the endless riddles start to sort themselves out. Of particular importance is the CB situation and all the ?s. Where did 2011 Rogers go and can he find his way back? Is TBrown holding out? He has the same agent as Goldson. Is Cully a future dominant talent, or an incurable head case? Can NA still run with the fast dogs? Are any of the draft picks hidden gems? With his obvious tools why doesn’t Cox play better? Just askin

    I appreciate your questions and observations Kennedy . . . but I might be one of the few that does. It provokes us to thought and reflection . . . before we start patting ourselves on the back with our signings and draft, just reflect for a minute on the SB and those two disastrous Jacoby Jones plays that broke our backs . . . if anything will bring us down it is overconfidence and arrogance . . . stay humble and be hungry – defense ! Play as one . . . cover for each other and be aggressive . . . QBoldin can teach all the players what it means and how important to “want it” . . . especially receivers and corners ! Thank you Q for showing up so far and lighting a fire, setting the course for the season! Niners win in the Meadowlands !

    Mike Kennedy: You right about secondary. That is really our biggest question mark heading into this season. I like the Mangini move. He is a Bill Billechick disciple and Bill’s defenses was always a huge challenge for even Bill Walsh teams when he was DC of the Giants. The Patriots have been a model organization and he will infuse some of what he has gotten from Bill. The chances of us meeting the Patriots too in the big game is very possible. I love how JH is secure with his place to bring other strong minds on the team because he has the foresight to know it will only make us better.
