49ers considered Eric Mangini for QB coach if OC Greg Roman leaves

San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman has been a hot name on the coaching market. If he leaves, there is a plan in place to replace it and it involves bringing in former head coach Eric Mangini, not as offensive coordinator but as quarterbacks coach.

Former NFL head coach Eric Mangini, who served as 49ers senior offensive consultant this season, was considered for a move to quarterbacks coach, sources told on Wednesday.

One source said moving Mangini to quarterbacks coach and promoting quarterbacks coach Geep Chryst to offensive coordinator was an option for coach Jim Harbaugh’s reshuffling of the coaching staff if the 49ers lost offensive coordinator Greg Roman. The source said he does not believe Harbaugh plans to make any changes.

It would be an interesting addition to the 49ers staff, and Mangini brings a lot of knowledge and experience.
