Patriots DC Matt Patricia likely to become Detroit Lions head coach

Patricia takes over for former Lions coach Jim Caldwell who was sacked on January 1, a day after the 2017 regular season came to an end.

Now, the Lions could be even closer to making it happen.

Reporting that the Detroit Lion's next coach may be New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia.

Patricia was believed to be the Lions' top choice, but a report this week indicated that all signs were pointing to Patricia taking over the Giants.

The Lions will have to wait until after New England's playoff run before working on contract details with Patricia.

The Patriots casually took care of business in a 35-14 TKO of the Titans Saturday night, to no one's surprise. He can not officially accept the job until at least next week as the Patriots will face either the Jaguars or the Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. If they advance to their third Super Bowl in four seasons, the Lions could interview Patricia for a second time during the bye week before the game but the soonest they could hire him as head coach would be February 5.

New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is reportedly heading to Detroit to coach the Lions.

At the beginning of the last week it looked like Patricia was a lock for the Lions job. It was only a matter of time before news leaked about where Patricia would end up in 2018.

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. Patricia and general manager Dave Gettleman apparently "hit it off" and it seemed as if the Giants was leaning in Patricia's direction. "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".

Detroit publicly announced six interviews for the head coach position job including - Green Bay associate head coach Winston Moss, and Lions offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter.

"At the end of the day, I want to take this team to the next level, and to me that's winning championships, that's winning playoff games and that's winning the Super Bowl", Quinn said. In fact, for three of his four years with the Lions, he led them to winning records.
