Darius Slay rips Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia in post-trade interview

You knew it was coming based on how eager Darius Slay appeared to be to get traded from the Detroit Lions.

On Thursday evening, the former Lions cornerback joined WJR radio host Mitch Albom and opened up about his turbulent last couple years in Detroit, specifically his rocky relationship with head coach Matt Patricia.

And while Slay’s displeasure with Patricia and the Lions was plain to see after the Quandre Diggs trade halfway through the 2019 season, Slay said things were in bad shape well before that.
