The San Francisco 49ers have hired ESPN analyst and former Jets and Browns head coach Eric Mangini as an offensive consultant, ESPN.com is reporting.

Mangini, 42, joined ESPN as a guest analyst during the 2010 playoffs and stayed in the role for the next two seasons.

In the NFL, he has spent one season (1996) with the Ravens as an offensive assistant, eight years as a defensive assistant under Bill Belichick with the Jets and Patriots -- including one as New England's defensive coordinator -- three years as Jets head coach and two as Browns head coach.

He owns a career record of 33-47 with one playoff appearance in 2006.

49ers general manager Trent Baalke was a personal scout for the Jets in 1998-99 while Mangini was a defensive assistant.

From the report:

In his role with the defending NFC champions, Mangini will work to find weaknesses in opposing defenses.

The role is a bit of a shift for Mangini, who always has been known as a defensive coach from his time working under Bill Belichick in New England.  He also has experience on the offensive side of the ball in his coaching career.
