It is unclear what this means for head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn. Since Patricia took over as head coach in 2018, the Lions are 9-22-1, with records of 6-10 in 2018 and 3-12-1 in 2019. Since Quinn took over as GM in 2016, the Lions are 27-36-1, with records of 9-7 in 2016 and 2017.
Both are likely on the hot seat this year, although Patricia might be more so given the more recent struggles since he was hired. Matthew Stafford was injured for much of last season and is expected to be fully healthy in 2020. If the team stays relatively healthy, this would seem to be a make or break season for Patricia and Quinn, even if there had not been a change in principal owner.
