Ken Whisenhunt

Two years ago, Whisenhunt was supposedly the Lions first choice for coach, before he chose the Titans over the Lions, and Detroit, in turn, went after Caldwell. The good news is he’s available again, and Caldwell is presumably soon to be on his way out of town.

The bad news is Whisenhunt is available again, because he was fired after going 3-20 in his time in Tennessee.

He also spurned the Lions once, so why would the Lions go crawling back to him?
