    FOXSports.com has learned that Lions coach Rod Marinelli has been informed that he has been fired. The move does not come as a surprise after going 0-16.

    The team will now look at other options. Hot names include Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, Atlanta offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey, Patriots OC Josh McDaniels, Ravens DC Rex Ryan, Titans DC Jim Schwartz, Cardinals DC Todd Haley and Minnesota DC Leslie Frazier.

    Despite going 0-16, Marinelli kept the Lions together and in recent weeks was applauded by fellow head coaches for not having anybody in the locker room, on or off the record, blast the coaching staff or the organization.

    The Lions are also searching for a complement to the front office. Believe it or not, Detroit is viewed in league circles as a prime job. They have the first pick in the draft as well as Dallas' first-rounder from the Roy Williams trade, a city starving for any wins and an owner who never meddles.
