Sounds like not only have the Bears not released their assistants but they aren't allowing them to interview for other jobs yet. If they end up keeping Marinelli that could be a best case scenario moving forward.

Also sounds like the Clements interview will be Thursday.

A good chance exists the team will hire a new head coach but retain defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli, and possibly other key assistants, according to those with knowledge of the situation.

Keeping Marinelli would be great and gives me a hell of a lot more confidence going into next year. He's been nothing short of great since being promoted to that position.


I actually remember being ticked off when they made that move several years ago. "Typical JA move!" Laughing

If the Bears are sold on a candidate making a deep run into the playoffs, it's possible they will need the current position coaches or they risk not being able to fill out the staff with qualified candidates.

Or, it's possible they are looking at a college candidate and they want to make sure they have experienced NFL position coaches available.

I'd love to keep Marinelli, defense played great. But we will need to resign Melton as he is a free agent and also Urlacher for less or get someone who has good speed and coverage ability to play mike. That or the Tampa 2 will have to be used less often, because I just don't see quality ball skills needed for that role in Roach.

Nice to hear from Captain Obvious.

Emery probably knew last year he was going to have to can Smith so that is why he lengthened the assistants contracts. Smart move.

As I have said Smith is not going to be hired as a HC so these guys are nice options to have.

That I am. You weren't saying this. Right away I said Marinelli could well stay while the Lovie Lovers were busy falling all over themselves setting up non-existent jobs for him. Pompei needs to come up with some real news.

Smart and shrewd move.

I would like him to fire the O assistants because I doubt they are being kept.

The d assistance as much as thy might want to leave I think it is in the best interest of the Bears to keep them.

Emery is not joking around.

not really a fair move on Emery's part, unless he's dictating to the next HC they have to keep the defensive staff as is, and in that case we probably won't get the candidate we want since he is coming in right away and being told how he has to build his staff. If the new HC wants the defensive staff, that's one thing, but if he doesn't plan on keeping the staff, and these guys are forced to sit and wait until all the other positions in the NFL are filled and then fired it's really a crappy move.
