Detroit Lions Make Coaching Changes

Detroit Lions logoForget all the talk about Super Bowl XL being in Detroit, let’s talk about the hometown team - the Detroit Lions.  I know you Detroit fans hate Matt Millen with a passion, so I hope to give you some optimism for next year.  Firstly, there has been a coaching change, even though some fans may say ex-coach Steve Mariucci wasn’t really the problem.  The new head coach coming in is a relative unknown. He is Rod Marinelli, a former Tampa Bay defensive line coach.  Lions also recently hired Donnie Henderson as their defensive coordinator, formerly of the New York Jets.  They also have their eye on Mike Martz as the offensive coordinator.  There has to be some excitement over the coordinator moves at the very least.  Well, those moves will only be as good as how the players perform on the field, and with that being said, they’ll most likely acquire a good player from the draft at the #9 position.  According to NFL Draft Countdown, they have Lions choosing a USC product and you can’t go wrong with those guys. Winston Justice, who played right tackle for the Trojans is one of them.  If not, USC RB Lendale White should still be on the board as well, if the Lions decide the injury prone Kevin Jones is not the answer.
