Their are some solid options out there.

Lovie Smith - Good defensive mind, hire the right O coordinator (not Martz) and we'd be in good shape.

Jon Gruden - great QB mind, could really help Matthew interceptford.

Bill Cowher - His scowl says enough.

Jack Del Rio - FOrmer NFL Coaching experience

Those would be a few picks i would be happy with. I doubt any of them would be interested in this job though.

That is a great list. All good fits. So that means the lions will opt for another up and coming assistant coach.

Just think, that is just my list off the top of my head. Imagine what a REAL General Manager and Owner in the NFL with connections SHOULD be able to come up with.

I figure the real problem is them actually getting someone to WANT to come here and coach though.

They are keeping Mayhew.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ry/rumor-mill/
The Lions shakeup appears confined to the coaching staff.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the Lions will retain General Manager Martin Mayhew.

While you can’t take Mayhew off the hook for the disappointing 29-51 Jim Schwartz era, the general consensus around the league is that the Lions have a talented roster that isn’t reflected in the record.

Mayhew was able to hang onto a role after Matt Millen was fired, and has put together a roster that should be able to contend, as they don’t have the same kind of quarterback issues other places with vacancies have right now.

I agree that the Lions have a pretty talented roster. They had some games where they really dominated and individuals had some great plays. But, they certainly can't maintain their focus for a full 60 minutes. They lack discipline. Let's hope a new coach can take the next step.

Some of the Eagles players said focus isn't so much their issue as is conditioning. Which would also play a part in being able to focus.

I'll try to recreate something I read years ago as an anecdote.

A sales manager was berating his national sales staff about poor sales, complaining that every region's sales were down. He turned to a retired MLB player who now worked as a salesman & said, "when you were playing ball and a player didn't perform, he got replaced, right?".

The former player said, "well, when I was playing & one player didn't perform, they replaced the player. But when the whole team didn't perform, they replaced the coach".

Maybe the new coach will man up and get a new quarterback instead of waiting for this one to figure it out.

Lol look up Matt staffords stats and how he compares to not only all other qb's all time, but more importantly qb's that came in the league when he did. Stafford needs work but is clearly not the problem.

I think Stafford can get the job done with the right coaching staff, but he has to fix his mechanics and read plays better, way too many bad int's this year.

More than anything they need another solid linebacker, another solid DB, and a better defensive scheme than rush 4 wide, drop 7 into zone, and get carved up.

Agreed I miss the Chris spielman days in on every tackle lead the whole defense kinda guy. Lions find a diamond in the rough like that and a different style defense they could make things happen.

Add a good solid linebacker to Deandre levy and the linebacking core looks fairly solid. 1-2 more DB's and that defense would be money....with better scheme and play calling.

Lovie is unavailable.

Bill Obrien is unavailble.

We know Cowher and Gruden were wish list guys.

We don't want Shanahan (I hope we don't want him anyway).

Wisenhunt seems like a good option.

Adam Gase's name popped up, I don't like that name though, no previous head coaching experience.

We really need a coach that's proven he can do something.

I still like the Jack Del Rio idea, though I think luring him away from Denver may also be tough. I mean who really WANTS to be the head coach of the Lions?

Looks like Whisenhunt

At least he has head coach experience.
