Lions to pick Patriots' Patricia as coach

Lions to pick Patriots' Patricia as coach

The next head coach of the New York Giants will reportedly come from a group of three National Football League assistants with teams in the playoffs: New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. If Shurmur spurns them, the Giants could turn to Panthers DC Steve Wilks.

The report indicates that Patricia and the Lions still have to agree to contract details once New England's season is over but, if all goes according to plan, Detroit will be very interesting as the 2018 campaign approaches.

There are also reports that Patricia is the top choice of the Giants.

But the Giants interviewed Patricia as well, along with the Cardinals. McAdoo planned a second interview with the Philadelphia Eagles before being hired by the Giants in a rushed manner. Of course, that is true of the Lions as well.

So, according to this RUMOR, the Lions are a lock to land Patricia unless he chooses to stay with Belichick or if Bob Quinn gets sick of waiting around?

On Thursday, Patricia was considered the favorite for the job. Because of that, it's never a surprise to me when a coaching search process is filled with rumor, after rumor, after rumor. McDaniels, who is the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots, also may be a candidate for the Indianapolis Colts.

CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE:CTL)
The technology company reported $0.42 EPS for the quarter, missing the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.45 by ($0.03). On Thursday, December 14 the insider MALONE JOHN C bought $2.03 million. $250,536 worth of Hanesbrands Inc.

Shurmur, like Patricia, is a highly sought-after commodity.

In Detroit, Patricia would inherit the better quarterback, in his prime, with a general manager he knows and trusts. This remains open, though a Vikings loss could force a Monday decision between Shurmur and Wilks.

Detroit might be the most comfortable landing spot for Patricia, given his penchant for tweaking NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Patricia has a good relationship with GM Bob Quinn and is considered to be ready for a head coaching job. Vrabel is the other candidate still alive here.

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. Just a great coach.

All three remaining candidates are now preparing for playoff games and are linked to other openings.
