NFL insider says Detroit Lions have Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald ‘on their radar’

Who will the Detroit Lions hire to be their next head coach?

That is a question that we are all eager to have an answer to and we should have that answer within the next month or so at the most.

Plenty of candidates have been mentioned for the Lions opening, including Marvin Lewis, who was reportedly the first interview this past Thursday.

According to a report from Jason La Canfora, the Lions are among the teams who are interested in Northwestern head coach, Pat Fitzgerald.

From CBS Sports:

The Lions, Falcons and Texans all have him on their radar, sources said, while other teams could make their interest more formal this week as well. Fitzgerald is expected to be judicious about any interviews he agrees to, but unlike in years past it is less than certain that he will quickly dismiss them and move on with the business of preparing for the 2021 Big Ten season.

Fitzgerald has long been seen as an NFL coach-in-the-making, with the same program building qualities that have attracted pro teams to Matt Rhule and Matt Campbell in recent years. His leadership and organization skills are top notch and he has been able to compete in a top division without having the depth and high-end talent of some other programs. His loyalty to the school where he played has also been admirable. 

Nation, how would you feel about the Lions bringing in Pat Fitzgerald to be their next head coach?
