Lions fired OC Joe Lombardi.
He'll be replaced by "Jim Bob Cooter," although head coach Jim Caldwell is expected to now call plays. The Lions also relieved OL coaches Jeremiah Washburn and Terry Heffernan of their duties. Lombardi arrived in Detroit with promise as a Sean Payton disciple in 2014, but Detroit's 2015 offense has been an abject disaster, ranking 29th in the NFL in points per game ahead of only Tennessee, St. Louis, and San Francisco. The Lions have been especially abysmal in pass protection, and their run blocking has been atrocious. Matthew Stafford absorbed seven sacks in Sunday's Week 7 loss to the Vikings. Oct 26 - 4:48 PM

New Lions OC Joe Lombardi will be the team's offensive playcaller.

New head coach Jim Caldwell is an offensive mind, but will take more of an overseer's approach. Formerly the Saints' quarterbacks coach, Lombardi learned under Sean Payton and will keep Detroit's pass-first mentality intact, which is good news for Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson. "The playbook that we're starting from is the Saints' playbook," confirmed Lombardi. We wouldn't be surprised to see more of a true timeshare in the backfield, with Joique Bell handling increased carries and Reggie Bush filling a Sprolesian role.

Lions hired Saints QBs coach Joe Lombardi as offensive coordinator.

Lombardi is the grandson of Vince Lombardi. He's been with the Saints since 2007, spending the past five seasons as QBs coach working with Drew Brees. Prior to that, Lombardi worked as an offensive assistant for the Falcons for one season and coordinated the offense at Mercyhurst College for four years. He played tight end at Air Force. Lombardi interviewed for the Jets OC opening last winter. He'll be another quality mind for Matthew Stafford to work with.
