Considering Quinn said he believes Customized Hockey Jerseys

Postby lahahae26 » 09 January 2018, 06:15

Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn is embarking on the first head-coaching search of his career. He hasn’t done one Customized Baseball Jerseys in his two years with the Lions and never experienced one during his time with New England, either.

He said he planned on doing a thorough search where he and team president Rod Wood would be the ones handling interviews -- not ownership -- in an attempt to replace Jim Caldwell, who was fired after the 2017 season.

Here is the coaching candidate tracker, which will be updated as news comes through.

Who they’ve interviewed: The Lions took last Tuesday to interview both in-house coordinators for the job. Both defensive coordinator Teryl Austin and offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter have been mentioned in the past as potential NFL head coaches. Austin has had a multitude of interviews, while this was a first for Cooter.

In interviewing both coordinators, it gave them both a chance to Customized Hockey Jerseys show what they would do differently than their former boss and also gave Quinn, the first-time head coach interviewer, a chance to go through two interviews with familiar faces before looking at outside candidates. Matthew Stafford said in his season-ending interview he'd like Customized Football Jerseys to see Cooter remain on staff. Austin, meanwhile, was hired by Cincinnati on Monday night to become the Bengals' new defensive coordinator.

Last Wednesday, the Lions sat down with Houston defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel, a former Patriots linebacker and Ohio State assistant coach whom Quinn has some familiarity with.

Vrabel’s defense doesn’t look great statistically -- allowing 346.6 yards per game (20th in the NFL), 109.2 rushing yards (13th) and 249.9 passing yards (23th). They also allowed a NFL-worst 27.3 points per game and struggled to get pass pressure with only 32 sacks. Of course, some of this has to do with losing star pass-rushers J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus.

On Thursday, Detroit interviewed 52-year-old Customized Basketball Jerseys Minnesota offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur -- a Michigan native. Shurmur put together one of the better offenses in the league, including a strong rushing offense (122.3 yards per game) despite losing starter Dalvin Cook in Week 4. He built a strong offense around journeyman quarterback Case Keenum and the Vikings Image averaged 234.6 passing yards per game. His offense averaged 23.9 points per game and was efficient on third downs, converting 43.5 percent of the time -- third in the league. It’s easy to wonder what Shurmur would be able to do with an offense led by Stafford. He also has head-coaching experience, although it was a rough two years in Cleveland with a 9-23 record.

The Lions also interviewed Green Bay associate head coach Winston Moss. The 52-year-old has been one of Mike McCarthy’s main assistants for a decade and has helped develop Clay Matthews and converted Julius Peppers from a 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker. He doesn’t have the coordinator experience the other candidates have and he’s never been a head coach, so his résumé isn’t quite as strong as other candidates.

Patricia might be the favorite, considering his ties to Quinn and his familiarity with a lot of what the Lions are doing already. Quinn took a lot of the scouting system and grading system from the Patriots to Detroit, and that could make a transition easier. Considering Quinn said he believes the most important relationship in an organization is the one between a GM and the head coach, the familiarity between the two can only help. Quinn said knowing someone beforehand could be a factor, too.

In Patricia, Quinn knows what he’s getting from a coaching and personality standpoint. Patricia has a brilliant mind -- he chose coaching football over engineering -- and has been credited with helping revamp the Patriots' video process before he became defensive coordinator. He’s one of Bill Belichick’s most trusted assistants -- just like Quinn was before the Lions hired him.

Detroit can't hire Patricia, if he is the choice, until New England's playoff run is over.
