Eric Mangini a candidate for Titans defensive coordinator

On Thursday’s PFT Live, former Browns and Jets coach Eric Mangini said he’s “looking at a lot of different opportunities” for 2011.
Although Mangini’s comments came before the news broke that Chuck Cecil will not be back as the Titans’ defensive coordinator in 2011, it now appears that the best of Mangini’s opportunities may be to coordinate the Titans’ defense.
Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that Mangini is a serious candidate for Tennessee’s defensive coordinator position.
Jeff Fisher has preferred a 4-3 defense in Tennessee, but Mangini arriving would open the possibility that the Titans would switch to a 3-4.
Mangini spent two years as head coach in Cleveland and three with the Jets. He has one season of experience as a defensive coordinator, in 2005 with the Patriots.
