The 1-6 Lions are firing offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi and offensive line coaches Jeremiah Washburn and Terry Heffernan, per multiple reports.
Earlier Monday afternoon, Lions coach Jim Caldwell told reporters that no changes were in store.
It’s been that kind of season.
The Lions gave up seven sacks in a 28-19 home loss to the Vikings Sunday. They rank last in the league in rushing offense.
Lombardi was in his second season as offensive coordinator after five seasons as quarterbacks coach with the Saints. Heffernan was in his third season as assistant offensive line coach, all three under Washburn. Ron Prince will be the new offensive line coach.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, quarterbacks coach Jim Bob Cooter takes over as offensive coordinator. The Lions go to London this week to play the Chiefs next Sunday.
