He stood off to the side in the Detroit Lions' indoor practice facility Wednesday afternoon, slipping in late and becoming inconspicuous as his new boss, Matt Patricia, was formally introduced as the team's new head coach. However, at his introductory press conference, Patricia cleared things up.

Patricia joined the Patriots as an offensive assistant in 2004, where he helped break down film for the offensive line. How much that rapport carries over - and how much Cooter is able to fix the run-game and pass-protection woes his offense had the past two seasons - will be key to Patricia's success in 2018.

Detroit's search was focused on Patricia right from the start because he worked with Quinn for a dozen years in New England.

More Snow in Store for This Week, Winter Storm Watch Issued
A Winter Weather Advisory is scheduled to go into effect at six Tuesday night and remain in effect until six Wednesday morning. Snow will start later in the day Tuesday and continue through the night when 5- to 8 inches of wet, heavy snow is possible.

The Detroit Lions are turning to former National Football League offensive lineman and long-time offensive line coach Jeff Davidson to try and fix the problems with their running game. There were some of the standard "no answer" answers as well, but this was nothing like we've come to expect from former coach Caldwell or what we've observed from the Hoodie back in New England.

"I think it's hard to really categorize a "Way, '" he said".

Patricia still has to lock down his coaching staff, and then begin to evaluate the roster alongside new defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni before they settle in on what kind of defense they want to be. The Lions went 9-7 last season and missed the playoffs, ranking among the NFL's worst rushing teams for the fourth straight year.

Poland's President Duda says will sign Holocaust bill into law
The law would make it illegal to accuse the nation of complicity in crimes committed by Nazi Germany, including the Holocaust . Analysts say that the legislation has isolated Poland from Israel, a key ally of the United States and neighbouring Ukraine.

Years later, Patricia took a pivotal step toward his dream job after earning an aeronautical engineering degree at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute by being a graduate assistant at his alma mater. He appeared to be in the running to be hired by his homestate New York Giants, but seemed to choose the challenge in the Motor City.

The former center and guard was a graduate assistant at RPI in 1996 before shifting gears to be an aeronautical engineer for two years. He acknowledged that Jim Bob Cooter would remain on the staff, but did not confirm whether Cooter would still be offensive coordinator, as had been reported.

Jim Bob Cooter was not mentioned in the Lions' release regarding staff additions, but he is listed on the team's website as its returning offensive coordinator.
