The Lions got crushed in London on Sunday, something that has been the final nail in the coffin for a couple of coaches running struggling teams in the last two years.
Despite the 45-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday morning, Lions coach Jim Caldwell doesn’t expect to be the third man to wind up flying home to a pink slip.
“Hey, you know what, I’m working every single day,” Caldwell said, via the Detroit Free Press. “My job is to get in and get my job done. Those things are answered by someone else and not me. But I fully anticipate being able to continue to do my job.”
The Lions made changes to their offensive staff before this week’s game, but the move to Jim Bob Cooter has only been a success for social media users thus far. With a bye week, the team could make further changes that include firing Caldwell and/or General Manager Martin Mayhew.
There’s been no word from owner Martha Ford or anyone else in management in any direction at this point, so we’ll have to wait to see if that changes during the upcoming bye week.
