The Lions have all three coordinators selected. As first reported by Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press and later corroborated by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Detroit Lions will be hiring Dave Fipp as their next special teams coordinator.
Before they depart from the Lions organization, the Caskey family wants to give back to the local community. With the expected hire of Duce Staley as the Detroit Lions’ next running backs coach/assistant head coach, that means that Kyle Caskey, the team’s running backs coach in 2020, is not being retained.
Another cornerbacks guru is joining Detroit’s staff. The Detroit Lions are making another highly-praised hire to their coaching staff. According to NFL Network’s Steve Wyche, the Lions are hiring Rams cornerbacks coach Aubrey Pleasant to be the team’s next secondary coach and pass game coordinator.
The Lions have been a mediocre or worse team since, well, forever, but a former position coach believes he can turn all that around. It was only one week ago when Dan Campbell was coaching the Saints tight ends, yet now he’s been hired as the Lions’ new head coach.
