BEREA, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Browns Head Coach Eric Mangini will meet up with new team president Mike Holmgren Wednesday to see if their philosophies are the same. The scheduled week-long meetings will decide whether or not Mangini will get to keep his job.

Tuesday, Holmgren held a press conference and was asked if Mangini had a chance to stay.

"Absolutely," he said. "Otherwise I wouldn't have set the meeting up. I don't dance too much. I appreciate people that shoot straight. We're going to have a meeting. Maybe a couple of meetings this week."

He also revealed that he gave Mangini a list of things to think about so he's not caught off guard at today's meeting. Holmgren hopes to make a decision on Mangini's future by the end of the week.

Mangini said that he has no plans to beg to keep his head coaching job.

"I think it's a function of answering the questions honestly," said Mangini. "Really having a good,honest, open discussion about things that we did this year. Anticipation of how things operate moving forward. And more two guys sitting down talking about things as they are and things as they will be."

The Cleveland Browns wrapped up their 2009 season with their fourth straight win Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Browns went 5-11 for the year, the four game winning streak is the Browns' first since 1994.

What do you think? Should Holmgren ditch him or keep him?
