Jim Caldwell will return to coach the Detroit Lions

A report from SI.com on Wednesday says current Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell, 61, who has been coaching the National Football Conference North Division team since 2014 will return in 2017.   The Lions (9-7) ended the 2016 regular football season on a three game losing streak after starting the season with a 9-4 record which led to rumors that Caldwell would be terminated at the end of the football season if the Lions did not make the playoffs.The Lions did qualify to make the playoffs as a wild card entry that will take on the Seattle Seahawks (10-5-1) who won the National Football Conference West Division title in the National Football Conference Wild Card Game on January 7, 2017 which is on Saturday evening at CenturyLink Field in Seattle Washington.Caldwell has been a head coach in the National Football League with the Indianapolis Colts from 2009-2011 and Detroit Lions from 2014-present with two Super Bowl rings as an assistant coach with the 2006 Indianapolis Colts and the 2012 Baltimore Ravens.Heck if I was a Detroit Lions fan I would be happy just to see the team make it to the playoffs this year and hope that Caldwell would return with a new and improved team in 2017 to have another playoff run.News source is Sports Illustrated.com and the image is courtesy of Pinterest.com
