I live in California, so I’m not as connected to all things Lions like you all are. So I wonder, how did we get Dan Campbell to be our HC? I’ve honestly lost track with the timing of the departures and hires of our HC and GM. Did Holmes hire DC?
We tried to get some Campbell guy from college who you can’t even feel comfortable betting $100 on in his college games. We failed getting that guy so we just settled on the next Campbell, who was far inferior.
I’d love to have been a fly on the wall for Dan’s interview.
It was seen as a left field appointment at the time and before his initial press conference a lot of people seemed indifferent or disappointed with it.
I think the guy is a fantastic leader and encapsulates everything you want the lions to be
Listening to Dan’s version of the story, he was able to read and understand everyone in the interview from the Lions side except for Rod Wood. He said Rod has an unreadable poker face and can hold it the entire time. That’s coming from Dan who says his superpower is reading people and their energy, and has proved it so far.
