Marty Mornhinweg

Consumate NFL Offensive Coordinator

Mornhinweg was a four-year starter at quarterback for the University of Montana in Missoula, where he set 15 passing records. During his junior season in 1982, Mornhinweg led the Griz to its first Big Sky Conference championship in a dozen years.

Because of Mornhinweg's notable performance, U of M inducted him into the Montana Hall of Fame. He earned his bachelor's degree in health and physical education/coaching, then went on to earn a master’s of science in health and physical education/sports administration from the University of Texas at El Paso. Mornhinweg was not selected in the 1985 NFL Draft.

A knee injury in an arena football league game cut Mornhinweg’s playing career short. However; his NFL coaching resume is as long as your arm, including a term as head coach of the Detroit Lions, offensive coordinator in Philly, New York (Jets) and Baltimore where he coached Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson.

Mornhinweg and his wife Lindsey have built a home in Missoula.
