Lions hired Ravens OC Jim Caldwell as their head coach.
After missing out on top target Ken Whisenhunt, the Lions settle for the man who worked hand-in-hand with Peyton Manning/Tony Dungy in Indy from 2002-2011. His success there as the quarterbacks coach and then head coach was impressive (two Super Bowl appearances, one win), but his ability to turn around the Ravens offense and lead them to a Super Bowl win after Cam Cameron was fired late in the 2012 season should be the bold print on his resume. In Detroit, Caldwell inherits a franchise quarterback that needs polishing in Matthew Stafford, the game's best wideout in Calvin Johnson, a potentially dominant defensive line and an all-purpose back in Reggie Bush. It's a professional hire that figures to benefit Stafford. Only the Browns and Vikings remain as teams still in search of a head coach. Jan 14 - 12:21 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen report the Lions are focusing on Ravens OC Jim Caldwell for their head-coaching vacancy.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora has a similar report. With Ken Whisenhunt choosing the Titans over the Lions, it's on to Plan B for GM Martin Mayhew and company. Lions owner Bill Ford Jr. spoke with ex-Colts coach Tony Dungy on Monday, and Dungy endorsed Caldwell. Peyton Manning also gave Caldwell a strong recommendation, per the Lions' official website. Ex-Titans coach Mike Munchak is also still in play for the Lions. They'll likely make a decision this week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ravens OC Jim Caldwell will interview for the Lions and Redskins head-coaching vacancies.

Caldwell's Lions interview will take place on Friday. Caldwell took over for Cam Cameron as the Ravens' offensive coordinator late in the 2012 season and immediately turned the group around and helped lead Baltimore to a Super Bowl title. The soon-to-be 59-year-old was the head coach of the Colts from 2009-2011. There's also speculation that Caldwell may succeed Bill O'Brien at Penn State. He was the QBs coach there from 1986-1992.
