Default Marinelli Interviews w/Texans, Signs w/Bears

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/6200476.html

I hope this goes nowhere. The last thing we need is ANOTHER 1st time DC, especially one coming off of an 0-16 HC effort.

I'm sure he would work wonders with the Dline though...

Default Re: Marinelli Interviewing with the Texans

We're not necessarily looking at him for the DC postion, nor is he looking to be a DC this year. He was a very respected D Line Coach when he got the job at Detroit. I wouldn't be at all upset if we hired him as a DL coach.

Regardless, at least the Texans are starting to interview people, and he's just the first.

I think he would be a good addition. Some guys are meant to be coord, and I think he will realize that. I also think he is a class guy, with the way he handled the entire Detroit thing. Awesome they way he did that. Would love to just have a conversation with him about all of that mess.

He's a great defensive minded coach and he's really got good connections with his players. I'd love this hiring for DL coach or maybe co-DC

If they're interviewing him as DL coach, that would be cool. If we were going to go with a 1st time DC, I'd just as soon it be Bush. He was the guy Kubes wanted in the 1st place, so maybe he has what it takes.

That's exactly what the Texans need. Someone to build a relationship with his defensive players and create accountability. Too much distance between millionaire coaches and players. We already have a laxed atmosphere in houston to begin with. I know players that left and went to other teams, and they said Houston is the best team in the league to chill at. No stress, big check, low accountability, and treated like kings by the organization. All that is good, but they have yet to create the family atmosphere, to want to succeed for their brothers on the field, and make it happen for their "papa", position coach.

Ive said it a few times, but it is worth repeating. No coach from on staff deserves the DC. That was a lack-luster game plan/scheme run for three years. Time for some new.

Well, unless we've already settled on Bush as the DC, I sure hope we aren't interviewing this guy for our DL, when we don't even have a DC in place yet... I'd say it's pretty important to let the DC bring in his guys. The last thing we need is more competing philosophies on the defensive side of the ball.

Your statement might have alot more to it than you think. We have to ask why would we interview a guy to fill the DL coach need before we find out who our DC is? Unless of course you already feel you got your DC in place (Bush) and he said he wants Marinelli.

Otherwise wouldn't you want your DC to recommend who he wants for the DL?

Somebody on TT.com said that he waited on Bush at a restaurant and asked Bush if he did any play calling or anything and all Bush said was that he and Kubes restricted certain defensive plays from Richard Smith.

I hope it's more the first guy there were able to get an interview scheduled with and that'll likely be around after the NFL head coach turnstile stops. While I like the fact that he's got a good history working with DLs and is very familiar with the Tampa 2 defense, I can't get over a guy that has 0-16 stink on him.

That is exactly what I was thinking. IMHO this means he IS here to interview for the job of dc. The only way he would be interviewed for dl coach is if Bush is their man for dc.

Default Re: Marinelli Interviewing with the Texans

He may not be a good candidate for DC, but he's a great candidate for D-Line. I got this from Wikipedia:

1973-1975 Rosemead High School (Defensive coordinator)
1976-1981 Utah State University (Defensive line coach)
1982 Utah State University (Offensive line and special teams coach)
1983-1989 University of California (defensive line coach)
1990-1991 University of California (defensive line and assistant head coach)
1992-1994 Arizona State University (defensive line and assistant head coach)
1995 University of Southern California (Defensive line coach)
1996-2001 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Defensive line coach)
2002-2005 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (defensive line and assistant head coach)

2006-2008 Detroit Lions (Head coach)

Those were some good years for the Bucs defense.

Agree and disagree. It is ok to have different philosophy on the defensive side of the ball as long as there is one person in-charge and everyone is on the same page. Most DC would prefer to hire there own people but Mainelli is probably so highly thought of as a DL coach that any coordinator would be glad to have him.
