Detroit Lions hire Brandon Sosna

Just over a week ago, the news broke that the Lions had poached Brandon Sosna from USC.

From ESPN:

Sosna began informing co-workers of his decision earlier this week, sources said. His role with the Lions is expected to be the Senior Director of Football Administration, according to sources.

Sosna has operated as the No. 2 to USC athletic director Mike Bohn essentially since Bohn’s hiring late in 2019, including a promotion to executive senior associate athletic director. During that time, Bohn credited Sosna as the architect for the “brilliant” search for Lincoln Riley as head coach.

USC was aggressive in trying to retain Sosna, sources said, but the lure of a career in the NFL trumped anything the school could come up with.

“He’s had a profound impact on the modernization of the athletic department,” a USC source said. “He helped us attract industry leaders and helped push our football program on the rapid trajectory toward competitiveness.”
