Bob Quinn has been with the Patriots organization since 2000 (Bill Belicheck's first year in Foxborough) where he started as a personnel assistant and has risen to director of pro player scouting since 2012. He has held positions as a pro scout and assistant director of pro personnel among other positions in his time with New England.

The only other non-Patriots position he held was as a graduate assistant to the Connecticut Huskies (his alma mater) from 1998-1999.

Quinn has reportedly beat out a couple of other candidates including in-house interim GM Sheldon White.

What do you think about the move Lions fans?
