Lions announce contract extension for general manager Bob Quinn

Will early headaches for Josh lead to Super Bowl joy? We’ll find out

After hiring Patricia on Monday, the Lions extended the contract for Quinn, who is entering his third season, on Friday.

"Just as far as coach Belichick is concerned, I'll say this: He's one of the most incredible coaches I've ever been around", the former defensive coordinator said to reporters. Patricia had been the defensive coordinator in New England and spent 13 years with the organization.

"Our goal is to win and to compete for championships", team president Rod Wood said. "It is also important for our entire organization to ensure stability as we move forward with Matt as our new head coach working in partnership with Bob". That's what makes it a great match for Bob and I to be in this situation.

Perhaps taking a cue from New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, the former Patriots defensive coordinator did not reveal details of the style or scheme he plans to install.

Quinn appears to have hit on several mid- and late-round picks, including wide receiver Kenny Golladay (third, 2017), return man Jamal Agnew (fifth, 2017) and defensive end Anthony Zettel (sixth, 2016), while second-rounders A'Shawn Robinson and Teez Tabor will be under the microscope with potentially expanded roles this fall.

"Thank you to Mrs. Ford, her family, and Rod Wood for their continued support and belief in my ability to lead this football team".

Matt Patricia's unlikely path to becoming an NFL coach began with his buddies, setting up miniature players on a vibrating, metal field for fierce games of electric football. "That process is underway as our coaching and player personnel staffs are collectively preparing for the roster building phase of the off-season". His key free-agent signings have been receiver Marvin Jones, right guard T.J. Lang and right tackle Rick Wagner. Notably, his pickups on the offensive line have not produced better results in the passing game (47 sacks last year) or the running game (last in 2017).

Davis served as Alabama's defensive-line coach from 2007 through 2010 and in the 2014 and 2015 seasons, with three seasons in the same position at Texas between his time with the Crimson Tide program.

The future of the Detroit Lions is indeed tied to general manager Bob Quinn and new head coach Matt Patricia. And after watching him land his top target in the coaching search, the Lions had seen enough to reward him for his efforts.
