Bears to Make a Run at Hiring Rod Marinelli?

From: Chicago Tribune

A day after Bears coach Lovie Smith hedged when asked about adding Rod Marinelli to his staff, general manager Jerry Angelo gave the fired Detroit Lions coach a resounding endorsement. “I think the world of Rod Marinelli,” Angelo said Tuesday. “I would love to have Rod Marinelli on our staff. And I think Lovie would say the same thing. “He’s a great football coach. Any time you get a chance to get a great coach, a great player, you’re not going to say you wouldn’t consider them or you wouldn’t work a way to do that. But that’s premature to answer your question about Rod.

“He’ll be a great addition to any staff.” The Lions fired Marinelli on Sunday after they became the first team in NFL history to go 0-16. He could come to Chicago, but the Bears have a defensive coordinator in Bob Babich, who has been under much scrutiny because his defense finished 21st in the league in total defense and 30th in pass defense.

    OK, go for Rod…just make sure he leaves his son-in-law and his father at home.
