ALLEN PARK, Mich. — The Detroit Lions have two more openings on their overhauled coaching staff. Lions coach Matt Patricia announced that defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni is leaving the team to be closer to his family in Connecticut.
Patricia says offensive line coach Jeff Davidson is taking an indefinite leave from the profession.
Patricia previously fired six members of his staff in hoping coaching changes will help him in a third season that might be his last if there isn't a turnaround.
The Lions were 3-12-1 in 2019 after losing 10 games the previous year in Patricia's debut as an NFL head coach.
