NFL Insider Tom Pelissero has released his fifth annual Rising Head Coach Candidates (under the age 45) list and one current Detroit Lions coach made the cut.
That coach is Lions DBs coach/passing game coordinator, Aubrey Pleasant.
There is no question about it that Pleasant has the fire to be a head coach and I also expect that he will make his way up through the ranks and eventually be a head coach in the NFL.
My fifth annual rising head coach candidates list is here, with names to watch in the upcoming hiring cycle and a robust group of young coaches to watch in years to come: https://t.co/TYwpaCD6fI
