Matt Patricia trims his infamous beard for Lions introduction

  • New England Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores left and Matt Patricia direct the Patriots' defense against the Philadelphia Eagles during the first half of the NFL Super Bowl LII football game at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis MN on Sunday

But Patricia certainly cleaned up nice, and made it clear Detroit didn't just hire the next Jim Tomsula. "I thrived on it".

Patricia has spent his entire National Football League career with the Patriots, beginning as an offensive assistant in 2004 before eventually rising to defensive coordinator in 2012. Following his second stint with the Cowboys, he ventured back into the collegiate ranks to take over for CT, going 10-18 before being fired four games into his third season, which started with an 0-4 start.

"He's someone that's worked with a lot of guys that I've worked with in the past and someone everyone speaks very highly of, and I have a lot of respect for because I've been on the other side of the ball going against him", Patricia continued. But if he doesn't win a lot of games, his personality won't really matter.

Pro Football Talk reported on Sunday night (before the Super Bowl had even ended) that the foregone conclusion for weeks (McDaniels to the Colts as their new head coach) might not be such a layup anymore. Since then he's been either a defensive line coach or a defensive coordinator for the Cowboys, the Miami Dolphins, the Chicago Bears, the Houston Texans and now, the 2018 Detroit Lions.

He's not in New England any more.

Patricia first interviewed with the Lions last month when the Patriots had their playoff bye week. "We've always maintained contact and connections through the course of the years". "We also spent a great deal of time together on the road scouting college prospects, traveling around the country trying to find new players". "I'll say this: There is one coach Belichick". He appeared to be in the running to be hired by his homestate New York Giants and perhaps the Arizona Cardinals, but choose the challenge in the Motor City at least in part because of his relationship with Quinn. "My comfort level with Bob was huge in all of this". The Cheshire, Conn. native holds a bachelor's degree in health and physical education from Penn State, as well as a Master of Science in Physical Education and Human Performance from Southern Connecticut State.

Brian Stewart is the team's defensive backs coach after a stint as defensive coordinator and interim head coach past year at Rice University. He acknowledged that Jim Bob Cooter would remain on the staff, but did not confirm whether Cooter would still be offensive coordinator, as had been reported. "Obviously, he's done a great job here with what he's been able to accomplish with (quarterback Matthew) Stafford and the offence".
