Marinelli could end up in Seattle

Despite rampant speculation that former Lions coach Rod Marinelli will wind up working with his former roommate, Lovie Smith, in Chicago, there’s at least one scenario that could prevent it from happening.

Marinelli has been talking to the Seahawks and considering taking a job with them. Now some people around the league believe Marinelli will wind up in Seattle.

Seattle’s president of football operations, Tim Ruskell, worked with Marinelli in Tampa Bay and knows what type of coach and man he is. Also, Seahawks vice president of player personnel Ruston Webster was a longtime Buccaneers employee who knows Marinelli’s value.

Marinelli is expected to make his decision this week.
