ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Three years ago, the last time the Detroit Lions searched for a head coach, it was a drawn-out but somewhat predictable process.
The Lions hired Matt Patricia days after the Super Bowl, a move that was widely anticipated for weeks. Patricia didn’t work out, and the Lions are once again looking for a head coach and a general manager, as well.
The Lions might or might not hire a head coach before a general manager. But they have an idea of what characteristics they are seeking in the people they will hire.
