Lions coach Matt Patricia plans to have a hand in everything, but when it comes to his coaching staff, he doesn’t want to micromanage.
And while he has said he’ll reserve the right to make a play call, on offense, defense or special teams, Patricia confirmed those duties will primarily fall to his coordinators, Jim Bob Cooter and Paul Pasqualoni.
That’s the way I think it should be done, Patricia said. That’s the way I was treated for all the years in New England.
There is one assistant who might have to worry about Patricia being too hands-on, at least according to the coach. Watch out, Al Golden.
I think it’ll always be very difficult for me not to gravitate towards defense, in general, probably the linebackers in particular, Patricia said. I mean that’s just kind of that’s your comfort zone, that’s where you tend to go, probably drive the position coaches a little bit crazy more than not. But, again, I’m excited to kind of be involved in all facets of it.

It is expected, Graham Glasgow will serve as the Lions’ starting center next season, but Johnson provides flexibility, in case the team doesn’t find a suitable replacement for Glasgow at left guard, or there is an offseason injury.
The guard opening is expected to be decided in a competition between Joe Dahl, free-agent addition Kenny Wiggins and a potential draft pick. It’s possible Johnson could also be in the mix for the job, as the 6-foot-5, 297-pounder Jimmy Wynn Jersey has some experience in the role.

Sean McVay has had a crush on Brandin Cooks for a while now.
Speaking to ESPN Los Angeles on Tuesday, the Rams coach gushed about his new receiver, who replaces Sammy Watkins as the field-stretching element of his offense.
Really, just watching from him coming out [of college], [he’s] just a strong, physical — he might be smaller in stature, but he’s a physical player. He’s wired to separate. You see him compete after the catch, you see him compete down the field, McVay said, via the team’s official website.
