Within the past hour or so (depending on when you are reading this), a bit of news broke that I have been predicting since not long after Thanksgiving.
The news I speak of is that former Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia is returning to the New England Patriots.
According to Jim McBride Patricia will assist the Patriots coaching staff “in a variety of roles” with one of those roles having to do with evaluating player personnel.
Following the news, a number of fans (who I assume to be Lions’ fans) took to Twitter to take a shot a Patricia and to poke fun at the hire.

HAHAHAHA running back to daddy Belichick. I'm assuming he'll be the waterboy or something?

He was like ordering steak, getting spam, returning it to the kitchen, never eat it, and still pay for it.
