According to the Detroit Lions, they have hired Brayden Coombs to be their special teams coordinator for the upcoming season.

From Detroit Lions:

Coombs comes to Detroit after spending the previous 10 seasons (2010-19) with the Cincinnati Bengals, including the last seven seasons as the team’s assistant special teams coach. During his time in Cincinnati, he served various capacities in addition to his role with special teams, including offensive assistant (2012), quality control (2013-15), defensive quality control (2016-17) and offensive quality control (2018). He originally joined the Bengals staff in 2009 as a coaching intern.

A for­mer wide receiver at Miami (Ohio) University, Coombs played for the RedHawks for four years and earned a degree in business.

Coombs is a native of Cincinnati, Ohio. He and his wife, Alexia, have a daughter, Harper, and two sons, Cam and KJ.

This is a very nice hire for the Lions as Coombs helped lead the Bengals to the No. 1 ranked special teams unit in the NFL in 2019, according to DVOA stats.
