The Lions have completed another interview for their head coaching vacancy.

The team announced that Packers assistant head coach/linebackers coach Winston Moss met with the team on Thursday. The Lions have also interviewed Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel and their own offensive and defensive coordinators — Jim Bob Cooter and Teryl Austin, respectively — this week.

Moss is the only known candidate for the Lions job that isn’t currently a coordinator and Moss has never been a coordinator in the NFL, although he has been mentioned as a possible in-house candidate to replace Dom Capers in Green Bay. He did interview with the Raiders for their head coaching job in 2012.

The Lions are also expected to interview Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur and Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia this week with Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks on tap for next week.

  1. Moss was my favorite LB growing up as a kid. It’s a shame his career ended way too early.

    Token Rooney Rule interview.

    Except they already interviewed Teryl Austin who is black, and are going to interview Steve Wilks next week. He’s also black.

  3. He was a heckuva player back in the day. I hope he gets a legitimate shot at a HC job, and not being used to satisfy some bogus rule.

    Ignorant comment. Austin and Wilks are black as well.

    Token Rooney Rule interview.
    ——-
    Pretty racist to imply he was only interviewed because of his skin color and not because of his qualifications as the assistant head coach/LB coach.

  7. I don’t think this is much of a Rooney Rule as it is that everyone wants out of GB. The days of the 70’s and 80’s is fast approaching them, and nobody wants to be apart of that many losing seasons.

  8. I’d loooove to see him out of GB. I don’t know what he does, but what he DOESN’T do as “Assistant Head Coach” and a defensive coach is ever take responsibility for things that go wrong. And what good defensive coordinator is going to want to come in to a situation where there’s an assistant head coach sitting behind him on that side of the line, whispering who knows what to McCarthy?
