The official announcement is expected at some point Wednesday.

A six-year deal is a pretty big sign that the Lions are all in on Campbell as the man who can turn the franchise around.

After the disaster that was Matt Patricia, he certainly has his work cut out for him. That much is for sure.

The more I learn about Dan Campbell, the more I like him. The guy seems like he has the perfect football mentality and he sounds like an excellent motivator.

We need a guy who can build a culture. It seems like that’s perhaps Campbell’s greatest attribute.

Welcome to Detroit, Dan! We’re happy to have our new leader!
