Im not a fan of this hire at all. What has he done that would lead anyone to believe he is a great offensive mind? History shows he's successful with a boat load of talent, but a loser with anything less...
Love this blurb from his wiki
During the 2001–2002 seasons, Mornhinweg was the head coach of the Detroit Lions, where he compiled a 5-27 record. The most notable moment in Mornhinweg's history as a head coach came during a 2002 game against the Chicago Bears. The game went into overtime, and the Lions won the toss. However, Mornhinweg felt that having the wind in his favor was more important than getting the ball, despite having as his kicker Jason Hanson, who hit a then-NCAA record 62-yard field goal in his college days at Washington State University. He elected to kick rather than receive. As it turned out, the Lions never got the ball; on the Bears opening drive, Chicago scored a field goal to win the game. Mornhinweg's decision was that season's runner-up for the Terry Award to Dwayne Rudd's premature helmet toss celebration that cost his Cleveland Browns a victory.

History tells us that coaches without talent don't do well. Look at Bellichick in Cleveland. Then he gets brady and insta-genius. But thanks for pointing out the obvious.
Not saying its a GREAT hire, but seems alittle early to hate the move.
