There were rumors all week that Jim Caldwell the 60 year old offensive mastermind’s job could be in jeopardy. Well that is not the case. Today Bob Quinn the new General Manager announced that he is keeping Caldwell as his head coach.
“After spending a significant amount of time together, it is clear that our football philosophies are very similar,” Quinn said in a statement released by the team. “Consequently, I am convinced he is the right man to lead our football team moving forward.”
Caldwell, who has two years left on his contract, had been in a state of limbo since the Lions ended their season with a 24-20 win over the Chicago Bears on Jan. 3.
