Newly hired head coach of the Detroit Lions Dan Campbell has been given a six-year contract from the team.
Itâ€™s an odd deal for a new head coach, especially with the team failing the last three seasons under former coach Matt Patricia who had a .321 winning percentage and 13-28 record before getting fired.
Campbell has been New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Paytonâ€™s top assistant for the last five years, and he was an assistant coach for the Miami Dolphins from 2010 to 2015.
Heâ€™s said to be a â€œplayerâ€™s coach and motivator,â€ but weâ€™ll see how he does moving forward.
Campbell will have to make a decision on whether he wants to move forward with quarterback Matt Stafford, or move on to begin a team rebuild.
Let’s hope the Lions front office knows what they’re doing hiring a new head coach for the long-term.
