Lions hire Rod Marinelli as new Coach

by Robert Banker
YoungPimpEO@aol.com

Unless you have literally been living under a rock in the Metro Detroit area for the last 6 years, then you know the Lions are horrible. This team has been considered a disgrace to the Detroit area. Countless people have given up on the Lions ever winning anything. Now Lions President Matt Millen has made a new hire at the position of Head coach. In Thursday’s edition of the Detroit News, Mike O’hara is reporting that Rod Marinelli has been hired to coach the Lions.

This report is a completely against all of the rumors that we have been hearing now for the last few days. Russ Grimm and Jim Haslet were suppose to be the leading candidates. Russ Grim is an assistant with the Steelers who are still in the playoffs, Haslet lead the Saints to a 3-13 record. Haslet was dismissed because he coached a team to a worse record then the Lions.

Marinelli comes to the Lions after 10 years with the Bucs. This man is known for having an attitude and demanding players to perform. Rod coached Warren Sapp and Simenion Rice each to career high years in Sacks. The man has done great work as the defensive line coach of the bucs. Millen hopes he can do the same with The Lions. If Dick Jaruon is not hired as head coach of the Bills, he will pry return as Lions defensive coordinator. The offensive coordinator position is still not known.

Marinelli is believed to have complete control of who plays. If Marinelli and Quarterback Joey Harrington do not get along it could be goodbye to Joey. The Lions have the 9th overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft in APRIL. It is not known If USC stand out Matt Leinhart or Texas Stand Out QB Vince Young will be available.
