Ok… so, while some believe that Patricia is 100% staying I am not so convinced. If the Lions lose out that means 9 straight losses. Hard to keep your job ending the season like that. Who are some candidates that you would like?
Marvin Lewis- this guy brought Cincy to respectability. It was bad before he got there. To the point of them giving guys used jock straps at the beginning of camp. Even if you don’t want to look at him as HC, I think he would be a good addition as president of the organization. He is a professional, and will help bring the Lions organization out of the cellar where Quinn and Patricia brought them. The guy knows how an organization should operate.
Riverboat Ron- I think it’s a foregone conclusion that he gets fired in Carolina. He is a players coach, but can also keep guys in line. He is aggressive with his decisions during the game and will have instant credibility with in the locker room. He coaches to win.
Jim Schwartz- yeah, I would love to have Schwartz back and also give him complete personnel control. The guy will learn from his mistakes as HC before. He brought this organization from 0-16 to 10-6 in 3 years. He fully embraced the city and the mindset. He was also responsible for the 2013 draft here; and IMO has a great eye for talent. I’ve believed for awhile that Schwartz is going to be a slam dunk hire for anyone looking for a head coach. I have seen guys be successful In their 2nd stint, with the same organization. I would love to see Schwartz here to finish what he started. This guy was built to coach football in a blue collar city like Detroit.
HM- Mike McCarthy: I know he’s not popular, but he’s been there and done that.
John Fox as president- another guy who knows how an organization should be run; and would be respectability back to the organization. He’s a professional. I do not want him as HC only in a FO role.
Not interested in any first time coach.
