Lions hired Ravens DBs coach Teryl Austin as defensive coordinator.
Austin has never coordinated a defense at the NFL level, but has experience working alongside new Lions coach Jim Caldwell going back to Caldwell's days at Penn State and Wake Forest. The duo is committed to keeping the Lions' 4-3 defense in place, which is an easy decision considering the resources Detroit has invested in its defensive line. Austin has 12 years of experience as an NFL DBs coach, so his first order of business will be sorting out the Lions' muddled secondary. Ex-Bucs DC Bill Sheridan is being interviewed as an assistant.

The Baltimore Sun reports the Lions are expected to hire Ravens DBs coach Teryl Austin as their defensive coordinator.

New Lions coach Jim Caldwell and Austin have known each other for a long time. The two worked together at Penn State and Wake Forest in the 1990s before their time with the Ravens the past two seasons. Austin has coordinated one defense in his coaching career -- the 2010 Florida Gators. He's expected to keep the Lions' 4-3 defense in place, which is an easy decision.
