Mangini takes charge at Cleveland

Eric Mangini has been named as head coach of the Cleveland Browns 10 days after being fired by the New York Jets.

He replaces Romeo Crennel, who was also sacked on 29 December after the Browns (4-12) finished last in the AFC North.

Mangini spent three seasons in charge at the Jets, guiding them to the play-offs in his first year at the helm.

But after an impressive 8-3 start this season, they lost four of their last five games to miss out on a post-season berth and Mangini, 37, paid the price.

Mangini began his NFL career as a public relations assistant with the Browns in 1994.
