The Lions have made another addition to their coaching staff, with the hiring of John Bonamego as special teams coordinator.
Bonamego comes from the Jaguars, where he was the special teams coordinator last year. In Detroit he replaces Danny Crossman, who left to join his friend Doug Marrone and become the Bills’ special teams coordinator.
The Lions’ special teams were terrible last season, and they were due for a change, although the Jaguars’ special teams weren’t great, either.
However, Bonamego was well regarded as a special teams coach in other stops prior to Jacksonville last year. He’s been a special teams coach in New Orleans, Miami and Green Bay. Bonamego is a Michigan native who played his college football at Central Michigan.
