I am tired of Millen

Recommended Posts

Isn't Marinelli in town? If you're going to hire him it would be wise to get some wet ink on a contract. Or a handshake with him still in town. Marinelli doesn't seem like a guy that would back out after a handshake.

Before the media gets the information, the non selectees should be contacted. It's a good business practice. It can't take but a few minutes to make the calls. Business is all about relationships. I'd wager Dombrowski, Dumars or Holland would have made the calls.

Didn't Foster say Haslett and Grimm quit on the Lions, not this other way around?

And Terry Foster's "insider" buddy said that Grimm would be a bad coach. So wouldn't it be a good thing that Grimm is not coming here?

I didn't know whether or not to put this in the Marinelli hiring thread or make it seperate but made it seperate. Here is some news regarding Millen.

http://insider.espn.go.com/espn/blog/index?entryID=2297432&name=clayton_john&action=login&appRedirect=http%3a%2f%2finsider.espn.go.com%2fespn%2fblog%2findex%3fentryID%3d2297432%26name%3dclayton_john

Matt Millen didn't win friends the way he hired Rod Marinelli, the assistant head coach of the Bucs. He didn't call any of the other candidates involved in the process after making the hire. Former Saints coach Jim Haslett had been waiting by his phone Wednesday because Millen told him he would fly to Detroit on Wednesday to meet William Clay Ford. Steelers offensive line coach Russ Grimm, one of the early leaders for the job, never heard he was out of the running. Neither did interim coach Dick Jauron. Basically, Marinelli met with Ford and earned Ford's blessing to get a deal done. Millen also didn't announce the finalists to the media as he said he would.

Lot's of good things at the bottom regarding Marinelli but it's very classless of the way Millen went about this.

That sounds like a man that just went out on two limbs, first with Grimm, then with Haslett, and was made to look like a fool. Rationalize why you were wrong John...
