Detroit Lions Likely To Hire Matt Patricia As Head Coach

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Citing league sources, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday morning that Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is "likely" to take over the vacant head coaching position for the Detroit Lions.

After Saturday night's playoff win over the Titans, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick made a point to commend both Patricia and offensive coordinator for getting their jobs done despite spending their playoff bye week interviewing for head coaching jobs. Patricia can't agree to a deal with the Lions until the Patriots season is officially over.

Patricia, who has been with the Patriots since 2004 and in his current post since 2012, was considered to be the frontrunner to land the Giants post, according to reports from the New York Daily News and Newsday. Quinn joined the Patriots in 2000 as a player personal assistant, then worked a variety of roles within the organization until he took the GM job in Detroit it 2016.

Prior to his time in New England, Patricia started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

As firm as the report might be, no contract is in place for Patricia and the Lions.

The politician reiterated Saturday the war was launched to punish the al-Qaida network for plotting 9/11 attacks on the USA from Afghan soil.

"I think that the one thing that everybody needs to understand about Matt Patricia is that he is a rocket scientist", former Patriots linebacker Dane Fletcher said.

It is a job he has always been rumored to be one of the leading candidates for.

The Lions employ Bob Quinn as general manager.

It appears that the back-and-forth of "will he or won't he" be the next head coach of the Lions may be over. Caldwell was 36-28 in four seasons and went 0-2 in two postseasons with the Lions.
