Notes: Detroit Lions filling coaching positions with young former players

Mike Rothstein at ESPN wrote a solid piece Thursday on former players bringing their experience and knowledge to the Detroit Lions as young coaches. The former players on the current Detroit staff mentioned are:

Former defensive back Steve Gregory, who recovered the infamous butt-fumble, joined the organization as a defensive assistant in March 2018

Former pro center Hank Fraley, recently an offensive line coach at UCLA, became an offensive line assistant coach for the Lions in February 2018

The Lions have essentially extended the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship to a yearlong position rather than just a spot during training camp.
