Grimm is the offensive version of Marinelli.

Schottenheimer decides not to interview with Bills
Posted by Mike Florio on January 13, 2010 11:22 AM ET
Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who acted for a while like a hurt bunny when Rex Ryan was hired to be the Jets head coach a year ago, has decided that he wants to stay in New York.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN (at least once a week I still find myself starting to type "of NFL Network"), Schottenheimer will not interview for the head-coaching job in Buffalo, before or after the season ends.

Schottenheimer apparently believes that future head-coaching opportunities will come.

And for more on this point, we yield the remainder of our time to Jason Garrett.

I don't believe that's really the case. Grimm is an assistant coach from what I understand, and Pitt. did that on purpose so teams couldn't offer him a coordinator spot. I don't believe Marinelli ever had that kind of respect or protection. I could be wrong about that, but Grimm seems much more professional, well spoke, and much less of a dolt. I was one of the very few that couldn't stand Marinelli when we first hired him. I was told that I was wrong about him, and that I needed to give him a chance to see what he could do. I repeatedly called for him to be fired and have this sh!tstorm end. Marinelli always came across like a company line toting dolt that said the right things and had NO substance behind it. Grimm doesn't strike me as being that type of guy.

Marinelli did have that protection when he was with the Bucs. He was the defensive line coach, but also held the title of assistant head coach. It seems odd that a line coach would have that "rank", but Gruden did that because he did not want to lose Marinelli to another team looking to make him a defensive coordinator. In order for a team to be able to interview and hire a coach under contract with another team, it MUST be for a promotion, not for a horizontal move. As an assistant coach, the only step up is head coach.

I knew about the horizontal move promotion, but I didn't realize that Marinelli had the distinction. Thanks for the clarification. The dood still seemed like a friggin' dolt from day 1.
