FOX Sports confirms Lions hire Dan Campbell as head coach

Campbell is now the New Orleans Saints assistant head coach, and tight ends coach.

After playing 11 seasons in the National Football League at tight end, Campbell began his coaching career with the Miami Dolphins as an intern, working his way up the staff, and eventually serving as interim head coach in 2015 after the team fired Joe Philbin.

Former NFL TE who spent 2006-2008 in Detroit, Dan Campbell, is emerging to become the Lions next head coach per Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.

If Campbell sounds familiar to you, he should.

The news about Campbell has been received with mixed reactions from Lions fans. Hopefully we don't learn the hard way that he would have been the right guy since he recently landed the head coaching slot for the New York Jets. He was also part of the New Orleans Saints Super Bowl Championship team in 2009. After leaving the Dolphins in January 2016, Campbell was hired by the Saints as the assistant head coach and tight ends coach.

Schefter adds that a contract between Campbell and the Lions still needs to be negotiated, but "it is not considered an obstacle". The Lions have made it a priority to change the losing culture in Detroit, and they think Campbell is the guy to do it.
