2009 Browns ... jumped from Jets
Mangini, one of the more prominent branches from Bill Belichick's coaching tree, started with a bang in 2006, leading the Jets to the playoffs. But after missing the postseason boat the following two seasons -- including a late-season collapse with Brett Favre at QB in 2008 -- Mangini was fired. Within weeks, he assumed the Browns' coaching reins and was also given the rare opportunity to hand-pick Cleveland's next general manager (George Kokinis). But a 5-11 season in 2009 changed everything. Kokinis was dropped for nebulous reasons, and then the Lerner family tapped Mike Holmgren to become the franchise czar, usurping any personnel powers that Mangini previously enjoyed. Mangini kept his coaching title in 2010, but another 5-11 campaign sealed his fate in Cleveland.
