Report: Detroit Lions to hire Jim Caldwell as new head coach

, ,
Cred: Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have reportedly found their new head coach in Jim Caldwell.

Caldwell was a longtime assistant under Tony Dungy before taking over the Indianapolis Colts following Dungy’s retirement. In his first year as a head coach, he took the Colts to Super Bowl XLIV, ultimately losing to the New Orleans Saints. During his three seasons as Colts head coach, Caldwell compiled a 26-12 record. His only year without a winning season was when Peyton Manning sat out with a neck injury.

Most recently, Caldwell was an assistant coach for the Baltimore Ravens. The team won Super Bowl XLVII with him serving as offensive coordinator.

Detroit has tabbed the offensive-minded Caldwell to replace a defensive coach in Jim Schwartz. In his final season, Scwartz guided a talented Lions team to an unimpressive 7-9 record. The Lions made the playoffs only once during Schwartz’s five-year tenure.
