Lions Sign Coach Jim Caldwell to Multi-Year Extension

Lions Sign Coach Jim Caldwell to Multi-Year Extension”

Caldwell and the Lions have signed a new deal that will keep Caldwell in Detroit for multiple years, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

All those questions, all the coy answers, it turns out the cat-and-mouse game between the local media and Lions coach Jim Caldwell was an unnecessary dog-and-pony show. The terms of the extension were not included.

But regardless of how the team handled the publicity of it, they made the right call extending Caldwell, who's quickly proving himself one of the most capable head coaches the Lions have had in most fans' lives.

The Lions carry a 2-0 record into Sunday's early-season showdown with the Falcons.? That's especially true considering how long the Lions had been at or near the bottom of the National Football League before Caldwell arrived.

Before joining the Lions, Caldwell had served as the Colts head coach from 2009 to 2011, and the Ravens offensive coordinator in 2012 and 2013. The team also signed quarterback Matthew Stafford to a massive 5-year extension prior to the start of the year, making him the highest-paid player in National Football League history.
