New Lions coach Matt Patricia: "We will be committed to winning"

New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia right calls a play during the second half of the NFL Super Bowl 52 football game against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday Feb. 4 2018 in Minneapolis

A freshly trimmed Matt Patricia paused in the middle of his introductory news conference as the new Detroit Lions head coach to slide his famous pencil over his ear. I'll say this: There's only one coach Belichick. Hopefully he offers a little more clarity on Malcolm Butler's Super Bowl benching, but given his loyalty to Bill Belichick, it's safe to assume we won't get any new answers.

Detroit's search was focused on Patricia right from the start because he worked with Quinn for a dozen years in New England. Watch the press conference above.

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

When asked if Jim Bob Cooter would remain his offensive coordinator, Patricia simply relayed that JBC "is on the staff and will be here".

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

After Jim Caldwell was sacked, Stafford expressed a desire to continue working with Cooter, while general manager Bob Quinn acknowledged that the new coach would have full autonomy over his coaching staff.

"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 Lions are coming off back-to-back 9-7 seasons and appear to be set at quarterback with Matthew Stafford. "There are a lot of guys that get deployed and our guys tend to do different things each year to keep us occupied while we're working, so it was just on my mind, making sure I remember all those great people who are out there helping us and protecting us".

Patricia said he is not trying to replicate what Belichick has done with New England.

Matt Patricia's unlikely path to becoming an NFL coach began with his buddies, setting up miniature players on a vibrating, metal field for fierce games of electric football. "Anytime I want to call a play, offense, defense or special teams, I get to call it". 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.

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.
