Matt Millen's time as CEO of the Detroit Lions would be forgettable if it wasn't so historically bad.

Detroit Lions re-haunted by one of Matt Millen’s mistakes at quarterback

Video: Matt Millen Unaware That Unsportsmanlike Conduct Penalty = First Down

ESPN announcer Matt Millen played professional football for 12 years, then served as the President and CEO of the Detroit Lions organization for another eight. Perhaps we’re starting to see why the franchise suffered for nearly a decade under his reign.
