Patriots DC Matt Patricia Expected To Be Named Lions Head Coach

Patriots DC Matt Patricia expected to be next Lions head coach report says

It appears that the "will he, won't he" saga of Matt Patricia and the Detroit Lions could soon officially be answered.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions are expected to hire Patriots DC Matt Patricia as their next head coach.

Should Patricia land in the Motor City, he'd be reunited with former personnel man and current GM Bob Quinn.

Economic Buzz: China Caixin Services PMI Accelerates To 53.9 In December
Services Purchasing Managers' Index or PMI stood at 50.9 for the month, a report by Nikkei said on Thursday. Panellists linked rises to higher raw material prices, which partly stemmed from supplier delays.

The Lions will have to wait until after New England's playoff run before working on contract details with Patricia. He can not officially accept the job until at least next week as the Patriots will face either the Jaguars or the Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. 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. If they advance to their third Super Bowl in four seasons, the Lions could interview Patricia for a second time during the bye week before the game but the soonest they could hire him as head coach would be February 5.

Patricia has also interviewed with the New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals, and Sports Illustrated and the New York Daily News have indicated Patricia to the Giants is more likely. The Patriots have finished in the top 10 in points allowed in all six of Patricia's seasons as defensive coordinator. "That is his master and his degree". "Ultimately, I'm the person in charge of football operation here at the Lions, and ultimately the record that we've had the last two years is on me". During his 4 seasons in Detroit, Caldwell went 36-28, and 0-2 in the postseason.
