No emotions for Marinelli
ALLEN PARK Former Lions coach Rod Marinelli, who is now defensive line coach and assistant coach for the Chicago Bears, told the Chicago Sun-Times he doesnt see any significance in playing his former team.
I focus on my opponent. I dont even acknowledge them. I just work on what we do, each and every week. I know it sounds cliche. Im not a cliche guy. Im just telling the truth. No one here wants to believe it. Thats how I live, Marinelli told the Sun-Times. Im really good at that. Im very disciplined because that would be cheating my guys. When Im in this office, I have to help them get better. I have to add value.
Marinelli was fired after the Lions finished 0-16 last season.
