Report: 49ers hire Eric Mangini as an offensive assistant

The 49ers just hired former defensive backs coach, head coach and ESPN analyst Eric Mangini, according to ESPN.

Mangini will be an offensive assistant for the 49ers. He will help Jim Harbaugh, Greg Roman, John Morton and Geep Chryst find weaknesses in opposing defenses. Mangini’s primary background is defense, but he was an offensive assistant for the Baltimore Ravens in 1996.

All credit to the 49ers for improving their coaching staff. But why do you think the 49ers felt the need to hire an offensive assistant? Do you think it has anything to do with the team’s win-win-loss pattern from last season? Or could it be the 49ers felt they should have scored at the end of the Super Bowl?
