Another weekend, another strong link to Matt Patricia

Another weekend, another strong link to Matt Patricia

Matt Patricia, the Patriots' defensive coordinator, is likely to become the Lions' head coach, ESPN reported Sunday.

With reports of Matt Patricia likely joining the Detroit Lions, one must be left to wonder if it's the Giants' inability to bend the rules that led to that decision. It wasn't that long ago that the Falcons started putting together Dan Quinn's new staff in Atlanta this very same weekend, knowing full well that they couldn't hire Quinn until his season in Seattle ended (and it ended up ending at the Super Bowl, when the hire that everyone in the league knew was already essentially done could finally be announced).

After Saturday night's playoff win over the Titans, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick made a point to commend both Patricia and offensive coordinator for getting their jobs done despite spending their playoff bye week interviewing for head coaching jobs.

With the conclusion of the Lions' 2017 season, Tim Twentyman, Mike O'Hara and Tori Petry are reviewing the team's performance in each phase of the game. At Quinn's news conference discussing Caldwell's firing, he was asked if familiarity with the person he was hiring was going to be a factor. It was only a matter of time before news leaked about where Patricia would end up in 2018.

That hasn't slowed the rumor mill, of course, as Patricia - who's believed to be Quinn's first choice for the job - has either been a lock for the Lions or waiting on the Giants job, depending on the day. He has his quarterback set in Matthew Stafford, potentially in an offense Stafford feels comfortable with if Patricia chooses to retain offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. This appear especially true along the offensive line.

That being said, in my 200 years of life (really 40), I have seen plenty of National Football League head coach searches play out. He'll also have a good chance to mold the front seven of his defense because two key players, Ezekiel Ansah and Haloti Ngata, are free agents and the front seven is one of the key areas needing improvement in Detroit.

There was no one the Lions interviewed who had more of a pre-established connection with Quinn than Patricia.
