Detroit Lions Begin the Offseason Firing Four Coaches, Strength and Conditioning Staff

Two days after their disappointing season ended with a last-second loss to the Packers, the Lions have found their scapegoats, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The Lions fired strength coach Harold Nash, special-teams coordinator John Bonamego and four other assistants Tuesday as they start what could be a significant offseason makeover.

Along with Nash and Bonamego, defensive backs coach Brian Stewart, linebackers coach Al Golden, tight ends coach Chris White and assistant strength coach Rodney Hill were let go Tuesday.

Defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni remains on staff.

“These decisions are never easy and I’m thankful for the effort these men gave our team,” Lions coach Matt Patricia said in a statement released by the team.

“I will continue to evaluate our entire operation in the coming days and weeks and will always make decisions in the best interest of the team. I wish these coaches the best in their future endeavors.”
