Was hired and fired by Matt Millen, arguably the worst GM in the history of the NFL.
Marty was and is still, the only Head coach in NFL history to win an overtime coin flip and elect to kickoff. Needless to say, his team kicked off and never saw the ball as the Bears kicked a FG with their first, and only, possession of the OT.

Soon he'll pay the price for his self-centered lack of vision.......since he is everything....he's responsible for everything......and he'll have to be the first sanctioned for everything.
Jeffrey Lurie needs to Warm up his best Donald Trump impression......."You're Fired!"

1. Marty Mornhinweg takes the wind in overtime vs. Bears (2002)
The most misguided coaching call of all-time does, in fact, belong to former Lions head coach Marty Mornhinweg.
With the Lions and Chicago Bears deadlocked at 17 and heading into overtime, the Lions won the OT coin toss, giving them the choice of playing defense or offense. With the NFL's sudden death rules, 99 times out of 100 the team that wins the coin toss will take the ball. Mornhinweg was that one exception.
The Windy City was living up to its nickname on that chilly November day, and Mornhinweg thought that Hanson, one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history, would be better off with the wind at his back. Mornhinweg took the wind and let the Bears have the ball.
Paul Edinger hit a 40-yard field goal on the Bears' first try with the ball. Bears 20, Lions 17.
