    IRVING, Texas – As one former Cowboys position coach heads to Chicago, it wouldn’t be shocking to see another coach make the reverse trip from the Windy City to Dallas.

    Bears defensive coordinator/assistant head coach Rod Marinelli decided to move on from his post, according to Chicago’s new head coach, Marc Trestman. That decision could have something to do with his longtime coaching comrade, Lovie Smith, getting fired as Chicago’s head coach.

    Monte Kiffin rejoining the professional ranks could also have played a role.

    Marinelli spent the last four seasons coaching for Smith, including the last three as defensive coordinator. Smith and Marinelli also coached together for five seasons as position coaches in Tampa Bay under the tutelage of Kiffin, the Bucs’ defensive coordinator, in the late ‘90s.

    De-facto assistant defensive coordinator. He will ultimately replace Kiffin.

    Yeah but they were the 5th ranked defense 8th in sacks with 41 and 1st in ints with 24 and 3rd in points allowed giving up avg of 17.3 points a game.

    Bears had problems most coming from the offensive side of the ball

    Not to mention all of the defensive TDs they scored. At times they looked like a tiger in the middle of chasing its prey.

    Starting to look like Marinelli isn't coming here after all. He's in Jax interviewing for the DC job.

    He's currently in Dallas, JAX is interested in him no doubt but don't go around spreading misinformation.
