Well, it looks like the Detroit Lions will have a football season, and to be honest, the season is a welcome sight.

Even Detroit Lions fans are happy; this is a huge season for Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn they have been told that they must “make the playoffs” by ownership. If this season is a complete disaster, then you would have to assume that somebody will be fired; usually, it would be the head coach.

If this is the case thus begins the search for the new head coach, but the Lions might not have to look far for a possible remedy. Might that answer be already on staff? The Lions have let some assistant coaches leave in the past, some have gone on to become great head coaches.

Chuck Knox, Marty Schottenheimer, Bill Belichick, and Don Shula, too name a few. This is an impressive list of assistant coaches that worked for the Lions Hall of fame coaches right under their noses, and they let them get away.

More from Detroit Lions

The Lions have a guy on their staff right now in Darrell Bevell that is ready to be a head coach in the NFL; he has been in the NFL for 20 years.

Bevell played the game at a high level in college, where he was the starting quarterback at the University of Wisconsin, leading the Badgers to consecutive bowl victories in 1994 and 1995.

Bevell went undrafted in 1996 and began his coaching career, his first job in the NFL was with the Packers in 2000 and has been a successful offensive coordinator with both the Vikings and Seahawks the next move for Bevell is being a Head coach.

He is a smart play-caller that knows how too utilize talent and keep defenses off-balance; he knows how to create opportunities for his playmakers.

Even when Stafford was injured, Bevell still had the ability to call a good game, and that’s saying a lot, it is clear what the problem was last year, and it wasn’t the offense. A balanced attack for the offense in 2020 will be key and Bevell’s abilities will help foster this.

His players seem to love playing for him, and Stafford showed improvement under his watchful eye if this season falls apart, then Darrell Bevell should be given a shot at being the Lions head coach sometimes a hidden gem can be found within your backyard.
