Lions Make Additions to Coaching Staff
The news was a little unceremonious, as it was announced during Super Bowl week's opening day where virtually all media and pro football attention were focused.
If either of those names sound familiar, you may be a college football fan. Edsall was the coach of the Maryland Terrapins before being fired midseason. Golden suffered a similar fate with the Miami Hurricanes.
Golden has been brought on to be a position coach for tight ends. Eric Ebron, Bear Pascoe, and Timothy Wright. Golden was a tight end in his playing years.
Edsall's role on the team is labeled as "Director of football research-special projects". I'll let the team explain.
From detroitlions.com: "The football research department assists in all aspects of game preparation, and also provides information to the coaching, personnel and football administration departments to help improve the team's decisions in the draft, free agency and on gameday."
The Bob Quinn overhaul seems to be really gathering steam now, at least on the coaching side. Any player moves will have to wait until March 9 however, that's when the new league year starts for the NFL.
