It’s been a while since we’ve seen a coaching hire in the league, but some of the teams are still filling out rolls. Today Greg Auman tweeted that Pete Mangurian will be joining the Tampa Bay Vipers as Tight Ends coach.
Former Bucs and Patriots assistant Pete Mangurian, who also worked as head coach at Cornell and Columbia, has joined Marc Trestman's XFL staff as tight ends coach for the new Tampa Bay Vipers.
Pete Mangurian was most recently the head coach at Columbia University, a position he had held from December 2011 to December 2014. He has been a long time assistant coach in the National Football League as a tight end, offensive line, and offensive coordinator. He has coached in two Super Bowls and two Pro Bowls and numerous playoff appearances during his tenure as an NFL coach. He also was the Head Football Coach at Cornell University from 1998-2000, compiling a record of 16-14.
Mangurian was hired by the Denver Broncos in 1988 and served as the team’s tight ends/h-backs coach until before the 1991 season, when he was promoted to the offensive line position. He coached in Super Bowl XXIV against the San Francisco 49ers. He also coached in the Pro Bowl in 1991.
Mangurian followed Reeves to the New York Giants in 1993 as their offensive line coach . He was with the Giants for four years as their offensive line coach. Mangurian again followed Reeves as his offensive line coach, this time to the Atlanta Falcons. However, after one season, Mangurian left the Falcons to become head coach at Cornell University.
In 2001, Mangurian returned to Reeves staff in Atlanta as offensive line coach, and was promoted to offensive coordinator for the 2003 season. The New England Patriots hired him as their tight end coach in 2005. He was with the Patriots for four years and coached in Super Bowl XLII against the New York Giants. He was hired by Raheem Morris in 2009 for the offensive line position for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
