Marty Mornhinweg
Offensive Coordinator

COACHING CAREER

After installing his offense last season, Marty Mornhinweg enters his second season as offensive coordinator.

For the first time since 2002, Mornhinweg broke camp with a rooking starting quarter- back. Drafted in the second round in 2013, rookie quarterback GENO SMITH started all 16 games for the Jets, the only rookie quarterback in team history to do so. He passed for 3,046 yards, making him the first quarterback in Jets history and 13th in NFL history to throw for more than 3,000 yards in his rookie season.

COACHING CAREER

After installing his offense last season, Marty Mornhinweg enters his second season as offensive coordinator.

For the first time since 2002, Mornhinweg broke camp with a rooking starting quarter- back. Drafted in the second round in 2013, rookie quarterback GENO SMITH started all 16 games for the Jets, the only rookie quarterback in team history to do so. He passed for 3,046 yards, making him the first quarterback in Jets history and 13th in NFL history to throw for more than 3,000 yards in his rookie season.

“I don’t know how many offensive coordinators have done a better job than Marty Mornhinweg,” Coach Ryan said about what his offensive coordinator did last season. “Faced with different challenges each week and here he comes. He’s done a great job.”

The Jets fielded the NFL’s sixth-ranked rushing offense, gaining 2,158 yards on the ground. Led by running backs CHRIS IVORY (team-leading 833 yards rushing) and BILAL POWELL (697 yards), the pair combined for 1,530 yards, the most a pair of Jet runners has combined for since LaDainian Tomlinson (914) and Shonn Greene (766) combined for 1,680 yards in 2010.

Over the last four games, the Jets offense produced 25.3 points per game and 361.3 yards per game, while converting on 54.1% of their third down attempts (third best in the league). During that span, the ground game produced 165.5 yards per game (second most in the league), while all the numbers in the passing game increased from their season totals, including sacks allowed (five) and interceptions thrown (two), both of which were in the top five league-wide.

Primary wide receivers Santonio Holmes (five games), STEPHEN HILL (four games) and JEREMY KERLEY (four games) all missed time due to injury this past season. However, the offense was able to successfully integrate in-season acquisition DAVID NELSON, who finished tied for second on the club in receptions (36) and third in yards (423) despite joining the team before the Week Five contest at the Falcons.

Mornhinweg has established a reputation of being one of the top football minds in the NFL, putting together record-setting statistical performances for two different franchises (49ers and Eagles) in the role of offensive coordinator.

During his time as coordinator with the Eagles, the offense set single-season franchise

records in completions (367 in 2012), total net yards (6,3 6 in 2011), completion percentage (62.0 in 2010), total points (439 in 2010) average per rush (5.4 in 2010), third down percentage (42.4 in 2007), net passing yards (4,119 in 2006), passer rating (96.7 in 2006), least interceptions (9 in 2006), and tied for the least turnovers (22 in 2004).

In each of his first six seasons as an offensive coordinator with the Eagles, Mornhinweg’s offense produced either a 1,000-yard rusher (Brian Westbrook 2, LeSean McCoy 2), 1,000-yard receiver (DeSean Jackson 2, Kevin Curtis) or 3,000-yard passer (Donovan McNabb 3, MICHAEL VICK 2). Overall, 10 different Eagles offensive players made a total of 17 Pro Bowl appearances, including two different quarterbacks (McNabb and VICK), three different running backs (Westbrook, McCoy and Leonard Weaver), two different wide receivers (Terrell Owens and Jackson) and three different offensive linemen (Tra Thomas, Shawn Andrews and Jason Peters).

In 2010, the Eagles set a franchise record in points for the third consecutive season and earned Mornhinweg NFL Assistant Coach of the Year honors from Pro Football Weekly.

Five quarterbacks have earned Pro Bowl status working under him: VICK, McNabb, Steve Young, Jeff Garcia and Brett Favre.

In 1998, his second season as coordinator, the 49ers offense established franchise records in total yards (6,800), first downs (381) and rushing yards (2,544). His unit became the third in NFL history to lead the league in both gross passing yards and rushing yards in the same season, joining the 1939 and 1941 Chicago Bears.

In 1996, Mornhinweg tutored Green Bay quarterbacks as Favre captured NFL MVP honors in leading his team to the Super Bowl XXXI championship.

PLAYING CAREER

Mornhinweg was elected to the Hall of Fame at both his college (Montana) and high school (Oak Grove) for his play as a quarterback. He established 15 passing records at the University of Montana and earned Northern California High School Player of the Year as a senior at Oak Grove.


OFF THE FIELD

He and his wife, Lindsay, have four children, two daughters, Madison, currently a senior at the University of Pennsylvania and Molly Lynn, who will begin her sophomore year at Montana in the fall; and two sons, Skyler, a redshirt sophomore quarterback at the University of Florida and Bobby Cade, who attends Delbarton School in Morristown, NJ.

 Graduated from the University of Montana with a bachelor’s of science degree in health and physical education in 1985 and earned his master’s of science degree in health and physical education/sports administration from the UTEP in 1988.

Born in Edmond, OK., but attended high school in San Jose, CA.
