According to reports, the Detroit Lions have successfully poached Philadelphia Eagles special teams coordinator, Dave Fipp. Yet another outstanding hire by the Lions.
Reports indicate that Eagles’ special teams coach Dave Fipp is heading to the Lions. Dave spent 8 seasons with the Birds.He ranks with the best I’ve ever been around. This past season, with players coming and going weekly, he had an impossible job but he never made excuses.

According to a report from Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell has decided on his offensive line coach, and rather than bringing in a new face, he is keeping respected OL coach Hank Fraley around.
In addition, Birkett suggested Dave Fipp could also be joining the Lions as special teams coordinator.
Nation, do you like these moves?
Some good news for Lions fans still coming to grips with the news Matthew Stafford likely will be playing elsewhere in 2021:
Respected OL coach Hank Fraley will be back with the team, and Dave Fipp could be joining him as ST coach now that the Eagles are letting him interview.
