Ron Prince has joined the Lions’ staff as the assistant head coach and tight ends coach.
Prince, best known as the former head coach at Kansas State, is being reunited with Lions head coach Jim Caldwell, who was also Prince’s boss in Indianapolis in 2010 and 2011.
There had been some talk that Prince might become the Lions’ offensive coordinator, but that job is still vacant.
Prince spent last season as the offensive coordinator at Rutgers. He has also been an assistant offensive line coach in Jacksonville, and an assistant for several college programs.
