REPORT: Detroit Lions' Matt Patricia to hire former Syracuse head coach

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

Just a couple days after officially hiring Matt Patricia as their new head coach, the Detroit Lions have finalized some other additions to the staff, including new defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni.

Patricia comes on board after the Lions fired former Coach Jim Caldwell on New Year's Day. 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. In fact, he was announced as the Lions new head coach in a press conference on Wednesday. Watch the press conference above.

But Patricia said his staff is still a "work in progress", much like the team itself.

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 he sees the game move and change before it actually does, it's unbelievable".

"The quick story on the beard is, honestly, 2011 I believe it was, I have a lot of buddies who are in the military, that have gone overseas, were overseas that year", Patricia said last month, per Justin Rogers of The Detroit News.

"Before we talk about anything like that, I think first and foremost what we need to talk about is the [NFC North] division", Patricia said.

"I'll say coach Pasqualoni and I have a long history together", Patricia said. With the Lions, he joins ex-Patriots executive Bob Quinn, who became the GM in 2016. "From how to teach and coach, and the fundamental beliefs that we had in New England, which I think are strong".

But Patricia seemed genuinely excited about his first National Football League head coaching job, calling it "a dream come true" and discussing his love for the strategy behind the game. He's someone that has worked with a lot of guys I have worked with in the past, someone everyone speaks very highly of and I have a lot of respect for because I've been on the other side of the ball going against him. "Any time I want to call a play, offense, defense or special teams, I get to call it", Patricia said.
