Detroit Lions Hire Veteran Coach As Assistant Head Coach

The Detroit Lions took a massive step forward in 2022, and were one of the most enjoyable teams to watch in the NFL, and unsurprisingly, their recruitment for coaching early this off-season has benefitted, with Offensive Coordinator Ben Johnson staying put, and now they've added a solid veteran to this coaching staff.

The man joining them will be Scottie Montgomery, who will join the team as an Assistant Head Coach and will also coach the running backs, consistent with his last job as the running backs coach in Indianapolis.

This is a team with one of the most talented running back rooms in the entire NFL, and if they can stay healthy under the guidance of Montgomery, there's no reason to expect anything but another massive leap forward for Detroit in 2023.
