Tannenbaum gets his man

Mike Tannenbaum got his man.

Jets assistant GM Mike Tannenbaum, wanted his good friend Eric Mangini to be the Jets next coach, and he got his wish on Monday evening.

The Jets showed little respect for candidate Mike Tice who interviewed Monday afternoon. If they really respected Tice, they would have at least waited until Tuesday to make their decision, like spokesman Ron Colangelo said they would early Monday evening.

The story was broken by ESPN's Mike Smith, who has been a reporter/Mangini agent throughout the process. Smith's loyalty to Mangini was rewarded with the scoop.
