Marnielli Joins the Bears Coaching Staff

From: Pro Football

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that former Lions coach Rod Marinelli has agreed to join Lovie Smith’s staff in Chicago.

Marinelli’s title will be assistant head coach/defensive line.

The Seahawks and the Texans also had been pursuing Marinelli, who was 10-38 in three years as the head coach in Detroit.

Possible next step? Marinelli’s son-in-law, Joe Barry, could be the team’s new linebackers coach.

One thing we know for sure is that he’d cherish the opportunity.

Of course, this thing would really become bizarre if Rob Parker were to be hired by the Chicago Tribune or the Sun-Times.
