Detroit Lions fans who were hoping to see a change at the defensive coordinator position have gotten their wish.
Paul Pasqualoni officially stepped away from the Detroit Lions on Saturday after a disastrous season that saw his defense consistently ranked at the bottom of the NFL.
Take a look at how fans took the news.
The Lions new Defensive Coordinator, whoever that poor sucker will be, needs to be flexible. They need to install a defense that works with their current personnel. Pasqualoni didn't seem to do that this year.

Idk how everyone thinks Paul Pasqualoni was the problem for our defensive struggles, it’s clearly Patricia and the way he’s running things.

One of those Detroit coaches, Paul Pasqualoni, said he ways "stepping away" to be closer to his family." If he comes back to coaching is that because he wanted to be less close to his family?

Patricia must have owed him quite a bit to hire Pasqualoni in first place. Patricia has a .297 career winning percentage. nepotism shouldn’t be tolerated at this level. This group has been a disgrace.

Yes I am ???? and you’re right. There was a step in the right direction today as Paul Pasqualoni (Defensive Coordinator) stepped away from coaching. Hoping we can find someone to run a competent defense and get some of our offense back in FA/ from injury.

I think they were just giving Pasqualoni the privilege to walk away as of pose to getting fired because there was no way he was going to return as DC. As for Davidson, I bet they want to keep him because the O line was actually a positive imo
