Rod Marinelli Might Be AvailableSeptember 24th, 2008
In case you are stuck at work and The Man won’t let you listen to a radio and the IT Nazis have the major sports sites blocked, then you may not have heard that Detroit Lions embattled general manager Matt Millen was shoved out the door this morning.
With a new GM soon to come to the Lions, how long will he put up with coach Rod Marinelli? The Lions coach, a former Bucs stud assistant, could be looking for a job, too. Not only has he been a failure at Detoit, but most GMs are impatient with struggling coaches hired by their predecessor.
Could this lead to a return to Tampa by Marinelli? By any and all accounts, Marinelli was an outstanding defensive line coach. Bucs defensive tackle Chris Hovan, for example, has given Marinelli credit for turning around his career. Former Bucs great Warren Sapp raves about Marinelli.
Is there a chance that Bruce Almighty lands Marinelli when he is unemployed, likely in December?
