Mornhinweg joins Eagles coaching staff

Postby Slingblade » Mon Mar 03, 2003 4:53 pm

PHILADELPHIA (March 3, 2003) -- Marty Mornhinweg, dimissed in January as coach of the Detroit Lions, was hired by the Philadelphia Eagles as a senior assistant coach.

Mornhinweg was released on Jan. 27 after compiling a 5-27 record in two seasons with Detroit.

"We are pleased to add Marty to our already fine coaching staff," said Eagles coach Andy Reid, who worked with Mornhinweg both in college and on the staff of the Green Bay Packers. "He's a good football coach and his experience will help this team."

Mornhinweg, 40, served as the offensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers for three seasons before going to Detroit. He and Reid coached together as offensive assistant coaches under Mike Holmgren in Green Bay from 1995-96.

Reid took over as the Packers quarterbacks coach after Mornhinweg left for San Francisco. The two also coached together at Texas-El Paso in 1987 and at Missouri in 1991. Mornhinweg and Brad Childress, the Eagles' offensive coordinator, coached together at Northern Arizona in 1988.

Mornhinweg took over the Lions after they went 9-7 and just missed the playoffs in 2000. But they were 2-14 in 2001, and 3-13 last season.

Former 49ers coach Steve Mariucci replaced Mornhinweg in Detroit.

;-D I lost all respect for him after that idiotic move. It still baffles me.

Agreed: Charity. He'll get paid to stand there and look important.
