Patricia can wait: Patriots win puts Lions on hold

Patricia can wait: Patriots win puts Lions on hold

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the current New England Patriots defensive coordinator is "likely" to be named Lions head coach once New England's season has ended, whenever that may be as they have just advanced to the AFC championship.

The 43-year-old defensive coordinator was one of the leading candidates for the Giants and there were various reports last week that indicated he favored NY over Detroit.

Patricia and the Lions still need to agree to and work out the contract details after the Patriots' season ends.

The Patriots may also lose their offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, who would be a strong candidate for the Giants job if they don't land Patricia, and who has also interviewed with the Colts.

During Sunday morning's conference call, Belichick did not address Schefter's report but explained his thought process behind hiring new assistants, one that does not alter much from his usual approach. Patricia was then promoted to defensive coordinator in 2012. If they advance to their third Super Bowl in four seasons, the Lions could interview Patricia for a second time during the bye week before the game but the soonest they could hire him as head coach would be February 5.

"I think Matt is a great leader".

It is a job he has always been rumored to be one of the leading candidates for. Patricia and general manager Dave Gettleman apparently "hit it off" and it seemed as if the Giants was leaning in Patricia's direction.

It appears that the back-and-forth of "will he or won't he" be the next head coach of the Lions may be over. The Lions went 9-7 each of the last two years and made the playoffs twice under Caldwell.
