Shurmur has only 33 games of National Football League head coaching experience under his belt and 32 of them came with the Cleveland Browns from 2011-2012 as he compiled a miserable 9-23 record.

So, according to this RUMOR, the Lions are a lock to land Patricia unless he chooses to stay with Belichick or if Bob Quinn gets sick of waiting around? The report also said former Denver Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville and Steve Spagnuolo, who finished the season as the team's interim coach are not being considered for the position.

If anything, this move makes complete sense for the Lions, as Detroit appears to be in good shape offensively with the pairing of quarterback Matthew Stafford and offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter.
