Detroit’s owners are tired of losing and it shows. This monumental change comes within weeks of firing offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi offensive line coaches Jeremiah Washburn and Terry Heffernan. The Lion’s have fired pretty much everyone, but head coach Jim Caldwell. I’m sure its crickets and baby steps around the Lion’s den.
“This season, owners have proven they are not afraid to make major staff changes in the middle of the madness, but the Lions have just set the bar. The team has fired general manager Martin Mayhew and team president Tom Lewand, Lions owner Martha Ford announced Thursday. Sheldon White, Lions vice president of pro personnel, is taking over as interim GM, and Allison Maki is the team’s new COO, per Ford. Maki has previously been Lions Senior Vice President, Administration and Chief Financial Officer.” – Reported by Conor Orr
