Mangini won't discuss Browns' GM's departure

Tuesday, November 3, 2009 - 12:48pm

Browns coach Eric Mangini is not offering any details about the team's unexplained dismissal of his friend, general manager George Kokinis.

Mangini says the team's decision to move ahead without Kokinis was "difficult, both professionally and personally." Mangini wished Kokinis and his family well and said things didn't work out for several reasons, though he declined to be specific.

Mangini deflected several questions about Kokinis' stunning departure on Monday.
