REPORT: Detroit Lions' Matt Patricia to hire former Syracuse head coach

At his introductory press conference, new Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia talks about his goals for the Lions and their fan base.

The team officially released a list of all of the new assistant coaches joining Patricia in Detroit, headlined by Pasqualoni.

David Corrao is the Lions' new director of football research. Watch the press conference above.

As a defensive-minded coach, what base defense will Patricia run in Detroit?

"Jim Bob is on staff and he'll be here", Patricia said.

"Time For Congress To Go,": PM Modi
He was responding to a question on the lack of job creation in India in the last four years. "Our right", the Chief Minister said. Several Hindu activists were murdered in the state which was a threat to democracy, the Prime Minister said.

Patricia pledged the Lions will be "competitive", and said his "bottom line is about winning". He and Lions general manager Bob Quinn worked together for a dozen years in New England.

"The way that he looks at the game, his vision of the game, the way that he sees the game move and change before it actually does is unbelievable", he said.

"The success that we had and his joy that he showed from being able to do that, that's really when it clicked for me as a coach", Patricia said with his previously bushy beard trimmed and a pencil over his right ear. The Lions went 9-7 last season and missed the playoffs, ranking among the NFL's worst rushing teams for the fourth straight year. Chris and Case have been talking about Matt Patricia coming to the Lions since nearly immediately after the Bob Quinn announcement was made - today the team made the official announcement and had the all-important press conference that goes along with it. He's in New England. He's a defensive-minded head coach, and having an experienced play-caller on the other side of the field while help Patricia transition to this new role. He's someone that has worked with a lot of guys I have worked with in the past, 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. I've got my own style.

But Patricia seemed genuinely excited about his first National Football League head coaching job, calling it "a dream come true" and discussing his love for the strategy behind the game.

Quinn fired coach Jim Caldwell last month with a 36-28 mark over four years and two playoff appearances.
