      Rod Marinelli - C - CowboysCowboys promoted DL coach Rod Marinelli to defensive coordinator.The move ends Monte Kiffin's disastrous one-year tenure as the Cowboys' coordinator. It's a clear upgrade, one that won't require an overhaul of Kiffin's "scheme." Marinelli espouses the same Tampa 2 principles as his former boss Kiffin. Marinelli served as Lovie Smith's defensive coordinator in Chicago from 2010-12. Marinelli isn't going to work any miracles with the bare cupboard GM Jerry Jones has left him on defense, but should resurrect the unit from the near all-time worst depths it plunged last season. Eight days after saying both Kiffin and OC Bill Callahan were safe, Jones has upgraded at both spots.

      Why would Monte even stick around with that arrangement?  Might as well hit the golf course.

      Jerry does all the drafting anyway, so Monte may have never got "his guys"  Jerry said last week, he has done a damn fine job GM'ing the Cowgirls.

      Well, I would assume he has enough money already, to last the rest of his life.

      Exactly!I am proud to play in one of the best divisions in football, but damn the NFC Least is a mess right now, and would be a much easier path to the playoffs.I think the NFC South is probably the 2nd or 3rd best division right now.

      Monte’s defense has been awful for YEARS.  I used to think he was a lock at one point for Canton but he has tarnished a great career by sticking around too long.  USC was god awful and so were the Boys.  Monte has LOST it.  I wouldn't want him anywhere near a defense.  Quite sad.

      I know. He's an old school coach who can't adapt. Now when he had players who fit his schemes he was a genius but without those players and without the ability to adapt he is just an old coach who probably should have gotten out of coaching after the Superbowl.  After they blew up his team.

      Marinelli is not great at the game-planning aspects either . He's great at teaching and motivating , but he's always struggled in the higher coaching positions that require scheming.

      Well at the time when you had Ware, Spencer, Ratliff and Hunter you might have thought you had the guys for his scheme...plus Lee at LB. The problem is of those guyts only one played all the year and most of them missed most of the year. Kiffin was juggling guys in and out and it looked exactly like our early years with the one gap system did - guys would not play their jobs and allows some huge plays.

      Someone posted that he still had the number one D in 2005.  Great players make great coaches no doubt but he's had some great players and stunk out loud.  I have a feeling that he may have some issues.

          Monte is now “assistant HC/defense”. That, along with with Callahan now having a “passing game coordinator” (Lineham) to deal with will give the talking-heads lots to talk about in Dallas…http://espn.go.com/dallas/nfl/story/_/id/10367651/monte-kiffin-loses-dallas-cowboys-defensive-coordinator-title-rod-marinelli

      About as laughable as you thinking Asst HC is a demotion from DC.

          Jerry knows Marinelli would bail if he just fired Kiffin, so he gave him a new title. Who knows exactly what Monte will do or how he’ll like his new job. Maybe he’ll be an intemediary between Garrett and Marinelli…

      I just don’t understand all the love for those coaches who still promote the Tampa2.Many a  writer clearly stated from their info, it's no longer effective as it used to be as teams have figured out how to beat it.Even here in Tampa we don't and haven't run a purebred Tampa2 for a myriad of reasons.Marinelli took it with him and how did it work out? Why is he now in Dallas after Detroit, Chicago and college ranks. Same for his boss Kiffin.When they were here they were great.It really scares me the Lovie will try to use it here when we clearly don't have the personnel.

      I'm not sure I get this US - why would we use a "purebread" Tampa-2 (whatever that actually is), when Lovie didn't use one in Chicago? And I'm not sure I understand you take on Marinelli - first of all, he was terrible in Detroit, but go back and look at the defensive personnel as well. In Chicago, he was the DC for the 4th, 4th, and 1st ranked defenses (according to Football Outsiders). In Dallas, his work with a tattered DL was one of the few bright spots on the entire D.

      Assistant coaches have less responsibility. They aren’t directly in charge of anything. Its most definitely a demotion.

      According to the NFL all coaches but the Head Coach are assistant coaches of some kind so OC and DC are assistant coaches as well.http://www.nfl.com/teams/coaches?coaType=assist&team=dal

        According to Rapoport @ NFL.com, Marinelli will now call in-game defenses, and Linehan will call in-game offensive plays.  http://www.nfl.com/videos/cleveland-browns/0ap2000000319611/Latest-on-Cowboys-coaching-carousel
