More changes to Lions scouting department as Roman Phifer departs for job with Broncos

After parting ways with two college scouts earlier this month, the Detroit Lions lost another one this week after Roman Phifer accepted a job with the Denver Broncos to serve as a senior personnel executive.

Phifer, who played 15 seasons in the NFL, joined the Lions scouting department in 2018, where he scouted colleges in California, Arizona and New Mexico for the team.

In addition to Phifer's departure, the Lions let go Midwest scout and scouting coordinator Ron Miles and east coast scout Jay Muraco earlier this month. All three had been hired by former general manager Bob Quinn.
