According to the Detroit Lions, they have named Ben Johnson as the team's offensive coordinator.
From Detroit Lions:
Johnson originally joined the Lions as an offensive quality control coach in 2019 before serving as the tight ends coach from 2020-21. While serving as Detroit's tight ends coach last season, Johnson added responsibilities in the passing game as the season progressed.
A quarterback at North Carolina from 2004-07, Johnson entered the coaching ranks with Boston College as a graduate assistant from 2009-10 before being promoted to tight ends coach in 2011. Johnson was hired as an offensive assistant by the Miami Dolphins in 2012 and went on to serve in a variety of offensive roles, including assistant quarterbacks coach (2013-15), tight ends coach (2015), assistant wide receivers coach (2016-17) and wide receivers coach (2018).
Nation, are you happy with Dan Campbell's decision to promote Ben Johnson to OC or would you have rathered him look outside of the organization?
