Chip Kelly and the San Francisco 49ers fired 10 assistant coaches earlier in the week. It appears as though defensive coordinator Eric Mangini has become No. 11.
San Francisco ranked 17th in points allowed in the 2015 season. Still only the New York Giants, New Orleans Saints, and Kelly’s Philadelphia Eagles allowed more yards than the Mangini-led 49ers defense.
Mangini was with the 49ers for three years, serving as their tight ends coach in 2013-2014 before taking the defensive coordinator job from Vic Fangio in 2015. He was previously the head coach of the New York Jets from 2006-2008, and the Cleveland Browns from 2009-2010.
