The Lions have not won a playoff game since 1991 and have had seven other head coaches since 2000.

Just a couple days after officially hiring Matt Patricia as their new head coach, the Detroit Lions have finalized some other additions to the staff, including new defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni. "I thrived on it".

Patricia, who is from Sherrill, New York, has taken a unique path in his career.

"I'll say coach Pasqualoni and I have a long history together", Patricia said. "At that point, the strategic part of the game along with my coaching aspirations just kind of put things in motion".

The Detroit Lions are turning to former National Football League offensive lineman and long-time offensive line coach Jeff Davidson to try and fix the problems with their running game.

Team president Rod Wood, who conducted the coaching interviews along Quinn, reiterated that none of the assistants were forced on the hire. "I believe that we are taking the next step in meeting those expectations".

As a defensive-minded coach, what base defense will Patricia run in Detroit? The Lions went 9-7 last season and missed the playoffs, ranking among the NFL's worst rushing teams for the fourth straight year.

Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia talks about his relationship with quarterback Tom Brady from Super Bowl LII on Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018 in Minnesota. He's in New England.

David Corrao is the Lions' new director of football research. "We've always maintained contact and connections through the course of the years". So there is a great background that we both share. "There's a huge comfort level for me to have him on board and to be able to entrust him to handle that".

After being a graduate assistant at RPI in 1996, Patricia shifted gears to be an aeronautical engineer for two years.

Normally a new head coach would want to bring in his own top-level assistants and coordinators.

As for any concerns over him wearing a Roger Goodell clown t-shirt past year, general manager Bob Quinn said he was asked about it roughly 30 times at the Super Bowl and it was briefly discussed with Patricia and was not looked upon as an issue.
