Coaching careerEdit


Mangurian began his coaching career as the assistant offensive line coach at Southern Methodist University in 1979 through 1980. In 1981, he spent one season at New Mexico State University as their offensive line coach. He then moved to Stanford University as their offensive line coach in 1982 and 1983 before returning to his alma mater, Louisiana State University, as their offensive line coach from 1984 to 1987. Mangurian returned to the college ranks from 1998 to 2000, as Cornell University's head coach [1] and again in 2011 as Columbia University's head coach. [2]


Mangurian was hired by head coach Dan Reeves of the Denver Broncos in 1988 and served as the team's tight ends/H-backs coach until before the 1991, when he was re-assigned as the team's offensive line coach. Mangurian followed Reeves to the New York Giants in 1993, where he was the team's offensive line coach until Reeves' firing after the 1996 season. 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. Reeves was fired during the season, and Mangurian spent the 2004 season out of football. Prior to the 2005 season, the Patriots hired him as their tight ends coach. He left the Patriots following the 2008 season, to join Raheem Morris's new Tampa Bay Buccaneers staff as an offensive line coach. Morris worked for Mangurian while he coached at Cornell. On January 21, 2011 he was fired as the offensive line coach of the Buccaneers.
