Detroit Lions fire Patricia, Quinn

Detroit Lions fire Patricia, Quinn

The loss resulted in the Lions firing coach Matt Patricia on Saturday, along with general manager Bob Quinn. "It wasn't what we hoped for when we hired them".

Following a pair of lopsided losses and four defeats over the last five games, it was getting clearer that a now 4-7 Lions team has fallen from playoff contention and Hamp moved Detroit in a different direction.

It's being reported that offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell will take over as interim coach. The team hoped that Patricia could mimic that success he had with New England but he failed to do so.

The decision to fire Patricia and Quinn occurred just two days after the Lions were embarrassed 41-25 by the Houston Texans on Thanksgiving Day in front of a national television audience.

Patricia, a disciple of esteemed New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, joined Detroit for the 2018 National Football League season, going 6-10 in his first year and even worse, 3-12-1, last year.

His.314 win percentage is the NFL's worst career mark by any coach whose teams averaged more than 21 points a game over 40 contests in the Super Bowl era.

The team's last playoff appearance was in 2016.

"We are going to do an extremely thorough and comprehensive search for both positions", Ford Hamp said.
