Since coming to the Detroit Lions, Matt Patricia has gone 9-18-1 and there has been plenty of talk about whether or not he would get a third year with the organization.
Well, according to a source of Sports Illustrated’s Lions Maven, the Lions will bring Patricia back in 2020.
From Sports Illustrated:
Matt Patricia will return to coach the Detroit Lions next season, according to several league sources.
“There does not appear to be many signs that the Lions and Patricia are operating like they are coaching for their jobs,” one league source told Sports Illustrated Lions Maven.
“The players who Patricia brought in speak very highly of him and he has strong support all over the league. If he is given enough time, the Lions will be competitive,” sources said.
“In this league, things can change week-to-week, sometimes minute-by-minute but I think Patricia will be the Lions coach next season.”
Nation, if these sources are correct, would this be the correct move by the Detroit Lions?
