In case you have not been following along, Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson has been arguably the hottest name in the league's head coaching vacancies. In fact, on Tuesday, DraftKings released their updated odds, and Johnson was listed as the favorite for two different head coaching openings. According to reports, Johnson has decided where he will coach in 2023.
Where will Detroit Lions OC Ben Johnson coach in 2023?
Just moments ago, Tom Pelissero reported that Johnson has told NFL teams that he has decided to remain with the Lions for the 2023 season.
From Tom Pelissero:
Johnson informed interested teams he’s staying in Detroit, per sources. Johnson was slated to travel Wednesday to interview with the #Panthers. But he feels Detroit is building something special and wants to see it through. Should be a hot HC name again next year.
Johnson interviewed virtually with the #Colts and #Texans and was considered a strong candidate in Carolina, where he grew up. Instead, he’ll be back in Detroit leading one of the NFL’s most entertaining offenses.
