Two days after interviewing with the Raiders, Mike Martz pulled his name from consideration for Oakland's head coaching job and is now contemplating whether or not to join the Detroit Lions' staff. Martz is talking to the Lions about becoming their offensive coordinator and will attempt to make a decision no later than Monday. Earlier this month the Lions hired Rod Marinelli to be their new head coach. Marinelli filled the other coordinator job on Tuesday when former Jets defensive coordinator Donnie Henderson was hired in the same capacity. Deciding who to hire as offensive coordinator will be a critical decision for the Lions, given the ongoing instability at the quarterback position. Marinelli wanted to discuss the job with former Bills coach Mike Mularkey, but Mularkey accepted an offer from the Dolphins last Sunday to run their offense.
