The Detroit Lions were one of the last teams to hire a new Head Coach.
The Detroit Lions have hired Baltimore Ravens OC Jim Caldwell to be their new Head Coach. Caldwell was the Indianapolis Colts’ Head Coach from 2009-2011.

Caldwell’s offensive mind will be put to use when working with QB Matthew Stafford, WR Calvin Johnson, and RB Reggie Bush.
Caldwell will also need to instill strict discipline into the Lions’ locker room. The Lions have immense talent, but have not reached their full potential due to a lack of discipline.
If Caldwell can maintain discipline, the Lions will be an immediate playoff contender.
