If the Detroit Lions are holding out hope of hiring New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia as the franchise's next head coach, the team will be waiting at least another eight days. New England advanced to the AFC championship game next weekend with a victory Saturday night over Tennessee.
Apparently, that's no longer the case if it ever was.
The Lionsfired Jim Caldwell at the conclusion of their 2017 season, finishing 9-7 and missing the playoffs. Patricia, 43, and the Lions, however, still have to agree on contract details, something that under National Football League rules can not be done until the Patriots' season ends.
More on Sunday NFL Countdown. And once the Giants fill their vacancy - they have reportedly whittled their list down Patricia, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks and Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur - the only thing in the way will be finalizing a contract. It was only a matter of time before news leaked about where Patricia would end up in 2018.
Patricia, 43, joined the Patriots staff in 2004.
A native of Sherrill, N.Y., Patricia was an offensive lineman at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y. He began his coaching career there as well, before making stops at Amherst College and Syracuse. "That guy is very good with numbers and he's very good with angles and what not, and he's very intelligent and expects a lot".
It is a job he has always been rumored to be one of the leading candidates for. Caldwell went 36-28 as the Lions head coach, with an 0-2 playoff record in four seasons. So, that's ultimately my record, and I take full ownership of that. He also spoke with the Giants and Cardinals regarding their vacant head coaching positions, as well as the Browns, Chargers and Rams in years past.
