Now, a new report is surfacing, and while it also suggests that a Patriots coach could be headed to Jersey, this time it's defensive coordinator Matt Patricia's name that's being thrown around.
Patricia immediately became a favorite to land the Lions head coaching job as many considered Quinn's connection to the Patriots an advantage.
But Patricia may have another job in mind.
There have been lots of changes lately when it comes to the Detroit Lions.
Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown To Play Sherlock Holmes' Sister Enola Holmes
This will be Brown's second major film after Legendary and Warner Bros.'s Godzilla: King of Monsters which will release in 2019. Still, we're very happy to see Brown take on a new leading role and we'll definitely be keeping our eyes out for this one.
Browns hiring former Packers executive Eliot Wolf
Per previous reports, Wolf signed a four-year deal with the Browns, the same length of the contract Dorsey signed last month. The Packers earned 13 trips to the playoffs, nine NFC North division titles and a victory in Super Bowl XLV from 1999-17.
Brooklyn Assemblywoman Indicted on Fraud Charges
Prosecutors say CIGG won another $35,000 in discretionary funding from the city council for fiscal year 2016. Authorities said her looting of government funds went on from 2012 through 2017.
All signs are pointing to Matt Patricia, the New England Patriots defensive coordinator with a degree in aeronautical engineering, as the man the Giants will hire to point Big Blue back in the right direction. Shurmur holds a 9-23 head coaching record during two seasons with the Cleveland Browns (2011-12), but has flourished in Minnesota having revived the career of backup-turned-starter Case Keenum as the Vikings' quarterback in 2017.
The Giants cannot officially come to terms on a contract with Patricia until New England's season comes to an end. "I was not reporting then, and am not reporting now, that the Lions will hire or are likely to hire Patricia".
Leonard writes, "The NFL's tampering policy dictates that the Giants and Patricia technically would not be permitted even to make an "agreement to execute a contract, ' let alone sign one, "until after the conclusion of the employer club's playing season" - or until after the Patriots" postseason ends". Would you be in favor of the Lions wearing something similar to this in the future? Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks could enter the mix as well, as he hits the interview circuit this week.
