The Browns have worked out a deal to hire former Jets head coach Eric Mangini to lead a team that finished a disappointing 4-12 this season, FOXSports.com learned Wednesday.

The team announced the hiring on their website Thursday morning.

Cleveland has still not revealed who it will pair with Mangini as the team's next general manager. Phil Savage was fired as GM last month.

The current Browns assistant coaches have been told not to come into work on Thursday or Friday, sources said, but there is still no official word on their fates.

When Mangini met with owner Randy Lerner, sources say the owner was extremely pleased with the coach's preparation, strategic planning and also heard very good feedback about him from several people within the Jets organization.
