“There’s one voice for discipline. Mine,” the Vietnam veteran said during his introductory news conference. “There’s one voice for leadership. Mine.” Lions president Matt Millen acknowledged the team he began crafting five years ago – which has compiled a league-worst 21-59 record – has been soft. ALLEN PARK, Mich. – The Detroit Lions hired Rod Marinelli because they hope he’s the tough coach they need to turn around the team that has been the NFL’s worst since 2001. Marinelli, a Rosemead native who spent the past 10 seasons in Tampa Bay as defensive line coach, certainly sounded like the right fit Thursday.

Millen interviewed 12 coaches the past two weeks in a process that was in stark contrast to the brief searches leading to the hirings of Steve Mariucci and Marty Mornhinweg. “It was a learning experience for me,” he said. Marinelli, who has a four-year contract, bristled at the notion of facing a difficult learning curve next season when he is a head coach for the first time at any level. He had the title of assistant head coach added by the Buccaneers in 2002, a role he also had at Arizona State and California during his 20 years as a college coach. “That has prepared me to be a head coach,” the 56-year-old Marinelli said. Millen is not bothered by Marinelli’s lack of head coaching experience. “It’s been done before, there have been guys that have come from the same route,” Millen said. “To me, it’s less about what they’ve done, and more about who they are. “I’ve been around coordinators that haven’t coordinated.” Marinelli is the latest protege of Indianapolis coach Tony Dungy to get a head coaching job. “Another one of Tony Dungy’s apples has fallen from the tree,” Kansas City coach Herm Edwards said in a statement released by the Lions. “(Chicago’s) Lovie Smith was part of his staff. I was fortunate to be a part of his staff, and now Rod Marinelli.” Marinelli attracted interest from at least one other NFL franchise with an opening. The Oakland Raiders interviewed Marinelli on Monday, then he traveled to suburban Detroit for a second interview with Millen. Marinelli was scheduled to depart from Detroit on Wednesday night – when former New Orleans coach Jim Haslett expected to arrive for a second interview – but ended up staying to negotiate his contract. Dick Jauron, who took over when Mariucci was fired in November, was one of many candidates Millen interviewed. Among the coaches Millen also interviewed were Haslett, Pittsburgh offensive line coach Russ Grimm; Denver offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak; Cleveland offensive coordinator Maurice Carthon, New York Giants defensive coordinator Tim Lewis and San Francisco assistant head coach Mike Singletary. Marinelli’s coaching career began in 1973 as an assistant at Rosemead High School. He was an assistant at Utah State from 1976-82 before moving on to California for nine seasons, Arizona State for three seasons and USC for one season. Marinelli helped Tampa Bay establish an NFL record with 69 consecutive games with at least one sack from 1999-03, and win the Super Bowl three years ago. The St. Louis Rams hired Miami offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, who became the sixth first-time NFL head coach to land a job in the last two weeks. The team called a news conference for today to introduce their fourth head coach since moving to the Midwest in 1995. It’s the first hire outside the organization, however, since Dick Vermeil was lured out of retirement in 1997. That move produced the franchise’s only Super Bowl victory after the 1999 season. Linehan, 42, helped the Dolphins finish 9-7 and win their last six games. He had been one of three finalists along with Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera and Chargers offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. Linehan replaces Mike Martz, who was fired one day after the Rams finished a 6-10 season. That move also came one day after Martz received medical clearance to return to the job after missing most of the season with a bacterial infection of the heart. Joe Gibbs addressed the Washington Redskins’ late-season offensive struggles by hiring offensive coordinator Al Saunders away from the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday. Saunders’ new title has yet to be determined, but he will join Gibbs, assistant head coach Joe Bugel and offensive coordinator Don Breaux in improving an offense that produced only 120 yards in one playoff game and scored 10 points in the other. The Redskins also announced contract extensions for all of their assistant coaches except for defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who got a three-year extension worth about $8 million last week. Hall of Fame receiver James Lofton interviewed for the Buffalo Bills coaching job Thursday. The former Bills player and current San Diego Chargers receivers coach is the fourth candidate to meet with team owner Ralph Wilson and general manager Marv Levy in their search to replace Mike Mularkey, who resigned last week. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
