Lions' Matt Patricia will keep Jim Bob Cooter as offensive coordinator

Jaguars-Patriots-Football-12

Patricia joined the Patriots as an offensive assistant in 2004, where he helped break down film for the offensive line.

Detroit's search was focused on Patricia right from the start because he worked with Quinn for a dozen years in New England. Patricia, with his beard trimmed, had his first news conference on the team's indoor practice field. "From how to teach and coach, and the fundamental beliefs that we had in New England, which I think are strong". He was the Patriots' defensive coordinator the past six seasons. He and Lions general manager Bob Quinn worked together for a dozen years in New England.

But what stuck out about Matt Patricia's introductory press conference as Detroit Lions head coach was how respectful and congenial he was. He and Quinn did ask candidates what they thought about those coaches on their staff. Quinn said January 1 that the new coach - now Patricia - would have autonomy over his staff. He was the Patriots' defensive coordinator the past six seasons.

After years of working under Bill Belichick, Patricia mastered the art of revealing little of his plans for the Lions other than espousing the National Football League doctrine of winning as the primary goal.

"I think it's hard to really categorize a "Way, '" he said".

"I wanted to find a leader that could take us to the next level and I am confident we have found that in Matt Patricia", Quinn said.

Detroit fired Jim Caldwell after a 36-28 record and two playoff appearances because the team believed it needed new leadership to become a true contender.

He earned an aeronautical engineering degree at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and later added a master's degree in education from the University of MA to his resume.

After being a graduate assistant at RPI in 1996, Patricia shifted gears to be an aeronautical engineer for two years. One of the things that made Patricia such a coveted head-coaching candidate was the reputation he built as being a coordinator who schemed a defense week to week based on the opponent. The Lions released the names of seven members of Patricia's staff on Wednesday, but Cooter was not on that list.
