The Lions are perhaps the NFL’s most disappointing team at 1-7 after an 11-5 playoff campaign in 2014.
In 2008, Lewand and Mayhew were promoted to their respective positions. The Lions posted a 47-68 record during their six-and-a-half seasons at the helm, including an 0-2 mark in the postseason.
It’s the second personnel move in as many weeks. On Oct. 26, the Lions fired offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi.
