Browns' Mangini awaiting decision on future

CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns president Mike Holmgren will meet with Eric Mangini on Monday morning to discuss the coach's future in Cleveland.

Mangini is 10-21 in two years with the Browns (5-10), who have shown some improvement this season but maybe not enough to satisfy Holmgren. Cleveland is 3-9 in games decided by 10 points or less and the Browns entered Sunday's finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-4) just 2-5 since upsetting the New England Patriots on Nov. 7.

Mangini has expressed confidence he has the Browns headed in the right direction, and on Friday said he was excited about being part of the team's future. Holmgren kept Mangini this season despite the club's 5-11 finish in 2009.
