Dallas Cowboys Stadium | Dallas Cowboys: Jerry JonesFrom Wikipedia: Rodney Marinelli (born July 13, 1949) is an American football coach, formerly the head coach of the Detroit Lions. He was fired from his position as head coach one day after coaching the Lions to the worst single-season record in NFL history, 0–16 in 2008. He currently serves as the Defensive Line Coach for the Dallas Cowboys.
Marinelli went to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1996 and was the defensive line coach for 6 seasons under head coach Tony Dungy. The latter four seasons he also served as assistant head coach. He was known for his structured approach and his commitment for trying to get the most out of his players. There he worked to develop lineman such as Warren Sapp and Simeon Rice into Pro Bowl caliber players. During Marinelli’s tenure in Tampa Bay, the Buccaneers earned more sacks than any other franchise.
