    It's official - Seahawks hire Marmie

    Seahawks | Marmie joins Seattle staff
    Wed, 29 Mar 2006 06:10:18 -0800

    Mike Sando, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports the Seattle Seahawks also have added Larry Marmie to their defensive staff. Marmie, a former coordinator with St. Louis and Arizona, has joined Teryl Austin in coaching defensive backs.
    I hope they use the term "coaching" loosely.

    Well, I'm no Marmie fan, but I don't think he's gonna do much damage as the asst. DB coach. A non-factor if you ask me.

    However, it is kind of funny to know that our former DC doesn't even rate a position coach, but an asst. position coach elsewhere. Man, I still know that Martz was a great coach, but good grief, the Marmie as DC move was an ugly one.

    Re: It's official - Seahawks hire Marmie

    Saw this on USAToday's website:


    Marshall named Seahawks defensive coordinator
    Ken Hamlin - DB - SEA - Mar. 29 - 11:01 a.m. ET
    John Marshall is the Seahawks' new defensive coordinator.
    In a long-anticipated move, Marshall was named to the position previously occupied by Ray Rhodes, who now moves into a consultant role. Larry Marmie, the former DC for the Rams, is also expected to have decision-making power concerning the 'Hawks' defense. His official title is defensive backs coach. Mar. 29 - 11:01 a.m. ET
    Source: The News Tribune


    Maybe he can sabotage them yet...

    Well, there's just not a lot to like.

    Re: It's official - Seahawks hire Marmie

    During Marmie's tenure as head coach at Arizona State, average game attendance fell from 70,717 to 55,715. Unlike many college head coaches who get recruited to leave their positions as head coaches, Marmie got fired for his poor record as a head coach before getting a job with the Cardinals.

    In the time he has been in the NFL, he has never coached at any level on a top 15 defense. In the time he has been a defensive coordinator, his defenses have ranked 28th, 29th, and 26th with Arizona and 17th and 30th with the Rams. The only player ever to make it to the Pro Bowl while being coached by this man was Aeneas Williams before the Cardinals traded him to us. I think he should make a very effective defensive backs coach... in Div. II football.

    The poison pill in his contract was the dotted line he signed on.
