However, the clock will now start to truly tick on Quinn's tenure in the Motor City after he pegged Patricia as the man to lead the Lions to the top of the NFC North. Moreover, I greatly enjoy my relationship and partnership with Bob. Quinn took over the Lions in 2016, signing a reported five-year deal at the time.

The extension matches the term of new head coach Matt Patricia, the Lions announced.

Quinn was hired to replace Martin Mayhew (and the interim Sheldon White) in 2016.

In his two seasons as general manager, Quinn has targeted several high-priced free agents at positions of need - Marvin Jones at wide receiver in 2016, and Rick Wagner and T.J. Lang for the offensive line past year - while building through the draft.

Davis spent the past season working as UT-San Antonio's defensive line coach, having left the Tide due to recruiting violations and appealing the NCAA's decision to give him a two-year show-cause.

"Thank you to Mrs. Ford, her family, and Rod Wood for their continued support and belief in my ability to lead this football team", Quinn said in a statement released by the team. Coach Patricia and I will always work in close concert on any and all football-related matters.

Quinn has done a lot of good things with the roster, like drafting left tackle Taylor Decker in the first round previous year.

But he's had some deficiencies as well. The defensive line coach joined Alabama in 2007 - Nick Saban's first season with the program - and stayed with the Tide until 2010, before accepting the same position at Texas (2011-13).

In addition to introducing new head coach Matt Patricia yesterday, the Lions also announced several changes to their coaching staff. Paul Pasqualoni is the team's new defensive coordinator after two seasons with Boston College.

David Corrao is the Lions' new director of football research. "I am pleased that we have reached an agreement with Bob on an extension to his contract", Lions owner and chairman Martha Firestone Ford said.
