The dictator is gone and the Detroit Lions can now move on to their next chapter.
On Saturday, Lions owner Sheila Ford Hamp made it official that both HC Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn had been fired, effective immediately.
Following the news, plenty of former Lions players took to social media to take a shot at Patricia, which really was not much of a surprise at all.
But according to a report from Michael Silver, it is not just former players who are not a big fan of Patricia.
Silver is reporting that he was told that “Sheila Ford Hamp didn’t have to explain anything to the players or other coaches. They were like, ‘thank you.”
Wow, if this report is true, it is VERY telling as to what things were like with Patricia at the helm.
Damn. They hated him. pic.twitter.com/2GOUYWsKcV
