ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions are expected to hire Saints’ Assistant HC/TEs coach Dan Campbell as their next head coach. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Campbell is known for his leadership abilities, which will be needed after Detroit's Matt Patricia era. He isn't considered one of the exciting, up-and-coming offensive or defensive coordinators that are in positions for other jobs. Still, a culture change is the biggest need for the Lions right now. The next order of business will be determining what to do with Matthew Stafford's mid-30s years.
