I wish they could just use Monte as a consultant and have Lovie calling the Defense.
I hated the Kiffin hire, but would love this.
How about Lovie just be the head coach of our team?
Works for me.. I got a feeling they would hire Mike Zimmer though.
Me too.. just need a legitimate OC, not a guy like Mike Martz. But I'm happy with this move.
4-3 or 3-4, they still need a stud d-lineman and a better-than-average safety. Then I will like whatever defense they throw out there this fall.
Perhaps the best D-Line coach in the NFL.
I don't ever recall Melton being regarded as soft. I have heard the rumors about Texas and the whole "Soft" thing but I don't really buy into it much. Definitely not about Melton.
Now this would be sweet.
Lovie won't come here to be a position coach under Garrett. He also won't be interested in sharing a title with Monte. All that would do is muddy the water IMO. I don't think Smith would do that.
If you were Smith, would you do it?
In a year, things might be different and he might be a HC somewhere. Maybe here, who knows?
This is good news.
Multiple sources tell WSCR that Rod Marinelli will not be #Bears defensive coordinator under new head coach Marc Trestman.
Wow this is some good news. Brings him in and can take over for kiffs. But what the hell is going on with the offense ?!
Impossible, no coach wants to come here. It's true, I read it here yesterday.
You'd still have to think he'd prefer a DC job over being a position coach, so I wouldn't bet on this happening.
Yeah, I can see the fit, from our perspective.
But to go from DC to DL coach is in every way a demotion and I just don't see why he would want to come here.
Chicago Beat Reporter says Marinelli would prefer a "fresh start" somewhere else over staying with the Bears.
If he came here, he'd probably be running most of the defense with kiffin. Just wouldn't have the title. If you promise him the coordinator job when monte goes then it really could work to his benefit and ours
I've heard San Diego and Celevland are interested in him as a DC. I see no reason for him to downgrade to a positional coach either. We'll see.
While this is good news, I suspect we will hear about numerous teams wanting to talk to him about a DC job by the end of the day. He is really going to want to be with Kiffin and Jerry is going to have to pay him like a DC or it will be tough to get him to Dallas.
