According to a report from Lynn Henning, the Detroit Tigers are “close to settling” on their TV analysts for the 2019 season.
Henning says the Tigers are close to settling on both Kirk Gibson and Jack Morris as their TV analysts on Fox Sports Detroit. Apparently, the Tigers are still trying to decide who will replace Mario Impemba as the team’s play-by-play man but they are expected to make that decision by the end of the month.
Tigers close to settling on Kirk Gibson (he'll decide on how many games he can work) and Jack Morris as principal TV analysts. Dan Petry set for a lot of pre- and post-game studio work on Tigers telecasts. Nothing yet imminent on play-by-play side. Decision expected end of Jan.

Nation, are you happy that Gibson and Morris are replacing Rod Allen? Who would you like to see replace Impemba?
The Detroit Lions next offensive coordinator will be…
On Tuesday, the Detroit Lions FINALLY cut ties with offensive coordinator, Jim Bob Cooter. It’s a move they should have made a long time ago as the guy could not play call himself out of a paper bag. But we are talking about the Lions and as we know, they always keep players, coaches, and general managers for way too long.
So, now that Cooter is gone, the speculation has begun as to who will be the Lions, next offensive coordinator.
Within an hour of the announcement that the Lions had decided not to renew Cooter’s contract, the local media and bloggers started to release their pieces on potential candidates to replace him. Some listed as few as five candidates while others seemed to list every offensive coach they have ever heard of.
To be honest, I personally have a list of seven which I planned on publishing (maybe I still will) until I actually gave it some thought and realized exactly who the Lions will hire. Note: He did not make my top seven.
Let me make something very clear. I do not trust Bob Quinn, Matt Patricia, or anyone else with power in the Lions organization when it comes to evaluating player or coaching talent. Because of that, I have to believe they will make the wrong hire once again.
