Detroit Lions' decision to wait on Matt Patricia could be telling

Patricia can wait: Patriots win puts Lions on hold Report: Patriots DC Matt Patricia likely to become Detroit Lions head coach
Lucia Summers | 14 January, 2018, 21:26

PFT reported last weekend that Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia was likely heading to Detroit as the Lions' next head coach, and although there's been plenty of reporting linking Patricia to the Giants, Detroit still appears to be the likely destination. The Patriots will play in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, January 21.

Even when Quinn was hired by the Lions in January 2016, he indicated that he believed both Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Patricia were ready to be head coaches then.

Apparently, that's no longer the case if it ever was.

Reports have swirled from the very beginning that Patricia was the guy the Lions had zeroed in on, but uncertainty in that outcome was thrown into the mix with Peter King reporting that Patricia prefers the Giants job.

Patriots' defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is likely to become the Detroit Lions' next head coach, league sources told ESPN.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport revealed that Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur "remains a strong candidate" in the Giants' eyes.

Well, rumors have been the name of the game this week when it comes to the Detroit Lions and their quest to find the ideal head coach for their organization. And the fact Quinn hasn't pulled the trigger is telling. So does the team's strength and conditioning coach, Harold Nash, so Patricia will know what type of workout program his players are expected to work with when they return for offseason training.

That being said, in my 200 years of life (really 40), I have seen plenty of National Football League head coach searches play out. After spending one year as the safeties coach in 2011, Patricia was selected as the franchise's defensive coordinator in 2012.

It bears repeating that Quinn, who's been in the Lions' Allen Park offices but hasn't informed some of his top lieutenants where the coaching search stands, has a close relationship with Patricia from their time together in New England. He's one of the best. If he decides to go with the Cardinals, the Giants could be in a tough spot.
