Football: The unexpected path that led Mark and Tommy Mangino to ISU
Football: The unexpected path that led Mark and Tommy Mangino to ISU Iowa State's offensive coordinator Mark Mangino, left, and his son, wide receiver coach Tommy Mangino, are reunited on the Cyclone football staff. His son, Tommy, was by his side. That's where Tommy Mangino stayed until his dad needed some one-on-one time with a player. Tommy Mangino wandered onto the field during a team drill. Tom flew like a Frisbee." The thought kept popping into Tommy Mangino's head. When he was little it all seemed so fun - the practices, the players hitting each other, the games on Saturday in front of packed stadiums. Now, as a 30-year-old, he knows there is more to it - the double-digit hour work days, the weeks on the road recruiting, more time spent reviewing video than on the practice field. He's been around long enough to realize coaching with your dad isn't common, even though ISU has the Mangino father-son combo on offense and the Burnham combo, Wally and Shane, on defense. Little Tommy Mangino just wanted to know what his dad was doing. So he kept going to practice at every coaching stop his dad made. Kansas State. Oklahoma. Kansas. Tommy Mangino was on the sideline as his dad climbed the coaching ladder from position coach to coordinator to head coach, leading the Jayhawks to a 12-1 record in 2007. The sport was always part of Tommy Mangino's life. He jokes that he didn't have a choice but to like football, yet, there is some truth to it. "It makes you feel special a little bit," Tommy Mangino said. At first, Tommy Mangino liked watching the players run around. The older he got, the more he focused on scheme. He liked dissecting a play, figuring out why it worked. "To this day, when I go recruiting and I see a coach and I like how they do things, I ask them why did you run it this way," Tommy Mangino said. "I am very intrigued by that, and I have been since I was a little kid." Yes, he was always drawn to coaching. • • • What would Tommy Mangino do for a job? He pondered the question at Johnson Community College (Kan.). Tommy Mangino promised her he would, that he would get a job with more steady hours. But he couldn't ignore his heart. "It was a difficult decision because I wanted to do something different because I knew when I turned 30 and had a family, I wanted to be around them," Tommy Mangino said. "but, again, I enjoy every minute of it and being a part of it." So he approached his mom about coaching. She went straight to his dad. Tommy Mangino's grades were good. There were plenty of other job opportunities for him. One football coach in the family was enough. But Tommy Mangino was persistent. He transferred to Washburn University, where he played baseball and football, in part to help him prepare for a coaching future. He went to his mom again, who again went to his dad. She said their son was serious about it. Around his junior year, Tommy Mangino worked up the courage to approach his father. The son asked the father why he was against it. Tommy Mangino told his dad he could live with it. Would Tommy Mangino ever coach with his dad? The thought would creep in his head as he worked up the coaching ranks. Yes, he worked at a graduate assistant for his dad at Kansas, but they only saw each other in staff meetings or on the practice field. There was a lot on Mark Mangino's plate and Tommy Mangino worked directly with the offensive coordinator. After Mark Mangino resigned from Kansas in 2009, Tommy Mangino gave up hope of working with his dad again. "I never thought it was a possibility," Tommy Mangino said. He just plugged along, spending two years at Kansas before moving on to Hutchinson Community College (Kan.) to experience the game at the grassroots level. He spent three years there, working his way up from position coach to passing game coordinator to offensive coordinator in 2012, when the Blue Dragons broke or tied 15 school records. It helped that Tommy Mangino grew up around the game. He attended practices run by future Hall of Famers. Tommy Mangino never took notes from Jim Tressel, Bob Stoops or Bill Snyder, but his dad is certain something stuck with his son. In short order, Tommy Mangino built a reputation as a technician, a coach capable of developing players. His dad is quick to point out his son is more patient than he is and cerebral, picking up concepts quickly. Rhoads vetted Tommy Mangino and came away impressed. "Tommy had to earn the opportunity and he did," said Rhoads in February. "Mature beyond his years … there was no gimmies on that position hire." It was over the lunch hour when Rhoads called to offer Tommy Mangino the job. As he received the call that would change his life, Tommy Mangino stepped off a Stairmaster, trying to catch his breath. He didn't want to huff and puff and spook Rhoads. Instead, he went into instant celebration, calling his family with the good news. The unexpected was a reality. Father and son would be reunited in Ames. "I thanked my dad a 100 times for even considering me," Tommy Mangino said. "It was, 'Hey, this is football, welcome,'" Tommy Mangino said. He couldn't get enough of it. He still can't. Neither can his 3-year-old son Vinny. He wants to attend practice. He loves watching the players, shouting in joy to his mom, Danielle, when they push each other. "My son loves being around the players and football just as much as I did as a kid," Tommy Mangino said. The sport is already in the blood of a third-generation of Manginos. Here the family is again, a Mangino with a son by his side, doing the job he loves. It's a tradition, just like trying to will his offspring into a different profession. And just maybe he'll have better luck with it than his dad. "I am going to coach him with all of my efforts to do something else," Tommy Mangino said.

CFB: Tommy Mangino Joins Iowa State Football Staff BASE: Former Hawkeye Jim Magrane Joins UI Coaching Staff CFB: Tommy Mangino Joins Iowa State Football Staff Updated: Thursday, February 6 2014, 05:35 PM CST AMES, Iowa -- Tommy Mangino will be Iowa State's new wide receivers coach, head football coach Paul Rhoads announced on Wednesday at his National Signing Day press conference. Mangino joins the Cyclones after spending 2013 at Arkansas as an offensive graduate assistant. Mangino will join his father, Mark, on Iowa State's coaching staff. Mark is in his first season as ISU's offensive coordinator/tight ends coach. "Tommy has earned the opportunity to be an assistant coach at this level," Rhoads said. Prior to his time in Fayetteville, Mangino served on the coaching staff of Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College. He served as offensive coordinator in 2012, as the Blue Dragons tied or broke 15 school records, including a team record in pass completions and individual records in total offense, passing yards, rushing yards and receptions. "This is probably the most exciting time of my career just because it's my first time being a full time coach at a BCS school," Mangino said. Mangino served as the passing game coordinator for Hutchinson in 2011. That season, the Blue Dragons set a school record with 601 points on the season. In 2010, Mangino was responsible for HCC's quarterbacks and wide receivers. Combined across his three seasons at Hutchinson, Mangino's quarterbacks threw for 7,200 yards and 78 touchdowns. Among the players who Mangino worked with was 2013 NFL Draft first-round pick Cordarrelle Patterson, who plays for the Minnesota Vikings. Mangino served as an offensive graduate assistant at Kansas for two seasons (2008-09) for his father, Mark. Mangino primarily worked with quarterbacks, helping Todd Reesing break nine school records. He was on-staff when the Jayhawks defeated Minnesota in the 2008 Insight Bowl. Mangino was a two-sport athlete at Washburn University, playing football and baseball. Prior to attending Washburn, he was a JUCO All-American at catcher for Johnson County, batting .310. Mangino earned his bachelor's degree in sports management from Washburn in sports management in 2008. He completed his master's degree in health, sport and exercise science at Kansas in 2010. He is married to the former Danielle Huff, and the couple has one son, Vinny. CFB: Tommy Mangino Joins Iowa State Football Staff
