Detroit Lions Likely To Hire Matt Patricia As Head Coach

  • Report Matt Patricia expected to take Lions head coaching job

But Patricia's hiring in Detroit is still speculation at this point, and will remain so until the Patriots' playoff run is concluded.

PFT reported last weekend that Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia was likely heading to Detroit as the Lions' next head coach, and although there's been plenty of reporting linking Patricia to the Giants, Detroit still appears to be the likely destination.

Although Patricia is still a ways away from being hired anywhere as the Patriots continue their playoff journey, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that he will likely choose the Lions over the Giants and become Detroit's next head coach.

Saudi women enter stadiums for first time
Women could attend the match after strict gender segregation was eased by authority in October past year . While many welcomed the decision to allow women into stadiums, others spoke out against it.

Should Patricia land in the Motor City, he'd be reunited with former personnel man and current GM Bob Quinn. A longtime executive for the New England Patriots, it was a natural assumption that Detroit's next head coach would come from the Bill Belichick coaching tree.

Beyond that, Patricia is well respected for his work with New England's defense and the way he's gone about building relationships inside the Patriots' locker room.

Patricia, 43, has been with the Patriots since 2004, elevated to defensive coordinator in 2012. "That is his master and his degree".

Jaguars' Two-Minute Drill from win over Buffalo
With only one touchdown and two field goals scored, it wasn't an exhilarating win by National Football League playoff standards. Allowed 1,433 rushing yards in last nine games (159.2 YPG); allowed 561 rushing yards in first seven games (80.1 YPG) in '17.

Patricia, who interviewed for jobs with the Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Rams in previous seasons, and with the Arizona Cardinals in addition to the Lions and Giants this year, checks off numerous boxes Quinn said he was looking for when stared his coaching search 13 days ago. In fact, for three of his four years with the Lions, he led them to winning records.

Patricia has been one of the hottest names in coaching circles for the last two years, interviewing with the Rams and Chargers last year and being linked to the Lions, Giants and Cardinals.

Winter storm leaves frigid temperatures in place
That cold air could result in some snow and mixed precipitation across the region late Friday night and into Saturday morning. Sleet and freezing rain, plus temperatures quickly dropping below freezing will bring widespread icy conditions.
