He was also a backup quarterback for the Denver Dynamite in the Arena Football League in 1987 after spending four years calling signals at the University of Montana.

The most notable moment in Mornhinweg's history was his decision to kick after winning an overtime coin toss. Mornhinweg felt that having the wind in his favor was more important for his Lions to win the game in Chicago, 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 and on the Bears opening drive, Chicago scored a field goal. Mornhinweg's Lions went on to become 3-13 after that game, and prompted fed-up Lions fans to refer to the coach as "Marty Moron-weg". This decision was the runner up for the Terry Award to Dwayne Rudd's premature helmet toss celebration that cost his Cleveland Browns a victory.

His most recent achievement was masterminding the Eagles offense in the final six games of the 2006 season, and into the NFC Playoffs. After Andy Reid gave Mornhinweg play calling responsibilities following the Eagles' disastrous loss to the Indianapolis Colts, 45-21, the Eagles, employing a more balanced run/pass attack, proceeded to win six straight contests--including an unprecedented three consecutive December divisional road games--all with a back-up QB, Jeff Garcia. It was the only time Andy Reid has yielded play calling responsibilities--a role Mornhinweg will continue into this 2007 season.
