Lions hire GM Brad Holmes after he wasn't on original list

  • Lions’ Dan Campbell hiring strays from the NFL blueprint but he’s a leader

"He will help promote the culture we want to establish across our organization, while also bringing with him high energy, a respect for the game and an identity with which everyone can align themselves".

Campbell doesn't have much experience as a head coach - just 12 games as an interim head coach for the Miami Dolphins - but the Lions clearly saw enough to pair him with recently hired general manager Brad Holmes. The Jets hired Robert Saleh, the son of Lebanese parents.

He started as a coaching intern with the Miami Dolphins in 2010 and was promoted to tight ends coach in 2011.

Campbell took over for Joe Philbin that season and will now take over for Matt Patricia, who was sacked during the 2020 season, which ended with the Lions going 5-11 to finish in last place in the NFC North for a third straight campaign. He becomes the fifth former Lions player to be named full-time head coach for the team and the first since Joe Schmidt, who played for Detroit from 1953-65 and served as head coach from 1967-72.

All residents from the elderly care home have been evacuated, said the director of Los Nogales residence, Antonio Berlanga. Mayor Jose Luis Martinez-Almeida told reporters at the scene that "it seems there was a gas explosion in the building".

A Clifton, Texas native, Campbell attended Texas A&M, where he was a four-year letterman for the Aggies and majored in agricultural development. He had 91 career receptions for 934 yards and 11 touchdowns with the Giants, Dallas, Detroit and New Orleans.

A 6-foot-5, 265-pound tight end during a 10-season National Football League career from 1999-2008, Campbell played for the Giants and Cowboys before a three-season run with the Lions to end his career.

"Dan's passion for this opportunity was evident throughout our interview process", Lions president Rod Wood said.

ESPN's Adam Schefter had reported on Sunday, after the New Orleans Saints were eliminated from the postseason, that Campbell was expected to be hired as the Lions' head coach. "When we began the search for a head coach, it was imperative that we find the right leader who values our commitment to building a winning culture based on organizational alignment and collaboration", President Rod Wood added in a release.
