Lions make it official, announce Patricia as HC
Patriots D-coordinator assumes head coaching duties in Detroit
By: Mike Krueger | Feb 5 2018, 1:00 pm

Detroit Lions
For weeks, Matt Patricia had been expected to be named the head coach of the Detroit Lions once the New England Patriots' season ended. Now, after a 41-33 Patriots loss against Philadelphia in Super Bowl LII, it's happened. The Lions officially announced Patricia as the 27th head coach in franchise history Monday, less than a day after he finished his final game as the Patriots' defensive coordinator. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Patricia has been the D-coordinator in New England since 2012 and his spent his entire coaching career with the Pats. Patricia also spent time on the offensive side of the ball, working as an offensive assistant and assistant offensive line coach. The Lions haven't won the NFC North since 1993.
