What Detroit Lions fans have known pretty much since week 15 (some figured this out even earlier), is that former New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia was going to be the next head coach. After a failure to make the playoffs this past season, Jim Caldwell‘s time was up. It was officially announced this past Monday, and there was great rejoicing among One Pride Nation.

After years of mediocre success and playoff losses, the Lions are finally starting to put something together it seems. Bob Quinn was brought in to take this team to the next level and he feels that Matt Patricia is the one to do it.
He was officially introduced today at a press conference. He came looking more polished then he normally does on the Patriots sideline.
