Fired Jets Coach Not Ready for TV

Dec 30, 2008  •  Post A Comment

After being fired, many pro football coaches take jobs in TV booths, but the New York Times doesn’t think deposed New York Jets coach Eric Mangini is ready for the broadcast booth. “Unless an alien, ebullient version of Mangini surfaces in auditions with network producers, he will be looking for a coaching job,” the paper says. “Networks prize candor and energy; they easily recall the on-air dullness of George Seifert, the former 49ers coach, in CBS’s N.F.L. studio in 1998. Mangini is even less stirring — and has never won a Super Bowl.”
