Sounds like Campbell is as entertaining now as back when he was interim Dolphins coach. 

Yes, nothing has changed. Campbell was popular with players and fans as interim head coach. Lots of Miami fans wanted him to get the job full time. But he always seemed like more of a caveman type than someone who could match wits with the sharpest franchises and coaches in the league.

Maybe an NFL version of hiring Ed Orgeron, if I had to compare. But college it's far simpler to monopolize elite talent and prop a coach like that.

The Lions have suffered at times from 'smartest guy in the room' syndrome, especially with Patricia, so I'll roll the dice on this. An assistant HC would be a nice addition, so maybe the Lions can do that.

Damn, they poached Aubrey Pleasant from the Rams, too.  I can't recall the Lions getting every single hire they wanted like this.

Sheila must be throwing around some $$$$$.

Per Rod Woods about hiring HC Dan Campbell

Quote

"Maybe the most impactful thing to me was when I talked to Mickey Loomis. I asked Mickey about that, and he said, ‘Dan is the kind of head coach that coaches are going to run to Detroit and want to be on his staff.’"

Everyone wants to talk about biting kneecaps, but the Lions vetted this guy and hired him for numerous reasons. Building a strong staff was one of the reasons.

I mean, I'm definitely impressed with how fast they've moved in filling these roles.

We'll see how it works

This is exactly what I got from his PC.

Sounds like a guy players will tune out pretty quick.

Yup. It's not the 1980's anymore. If the L's pile up, players will just roll their eyes at the rah rah speeches.
