Millen No Longer A Lion

Matt Millen
What has been talked about for what seems like an eternity and no doubt has been water cooler material in and around Detroit offices – in this case Matt Millen and his future – has finally come to pass; according to on Wednesday, Millen is leaving his position as the Detroit Lions president/CEO. What wasn’t clear was whether Millen had resigned or had been fired.

The report by also stated that Millen had informed a number of Lions employees of the change on Wednesday morning and had large packing boxes in his office; the move comes 2 days after the son of team owner William Clay Ford, Bill Ford, Jr., publicly said that if he was in charge that Millen would have been fired. If I didn’t know any better, I would venture to say that the elder staesman listened to his son finally. Under Millen’s watch, the Lions went 31-84 and won only 1 playoff game and until very recently had ignored fans’ pleas to get rid of Millen.
