 Isn't it the job of the head coach to fire one of his coordinators and not the general manager.

 

 I hope Millen keeps his job. That way we don't  have to listen to him announce on game day.

MARTZ NO MORE IN MOTOWN


As first reported in this space last week (well, there goes the New Year's resolution to stop tooting our own horn), the Lions have fired offensive coordinator Mike Martz.


The first word of it came, as far as we can tell, via ESPN2's First Take.


Martz spent two years in the position, and it was widely believed that he was hoping to parlay one successful season into another shot at a head-coaching gig.


We'd also heard that Martz has been trolling for offensive coordinator positions in other cities.  And we continue to hear that rumors Martz will replace Jim Hostler in San Fran is nothing more than a figment of agent Bob Lamont's imagination.


Though Martz was expected to be replaced by receivers coach Kippy Brown, the job reportedly will go to offensive line coach Jim Colletto.


UPDATE:  The story comes from Chris Mortensen of ESPN.  Mort also reports that Brown has been promoted to assistant head coach/passing games coordinator.  He also will be the running backs coach.

Okay, get rid of Martz. But replace him with Jim Colletto and Kippy Brown? Colletto was a crappy college coach at Purdue and a crappy offensive coordinator at Notre Dame. Kippy has been everywhere. He was even Head Coach of Memphis in the XFL.
