Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell has a great idea for the team.

During a recent interview on “Pardon My Take,” the first-year Detroit head coach said he wants to get a real lion to walk around with him as a legit pet. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

He pointed out that he’s not sure it will happen, but that it’d be awesome if it did. Watch him break it down below.

As a Lions fan, I couldn’t be happier that Dan Campbell is the head coach in Detroit. This dude is everything I’ve hoped for and more.

Most coaches want to talk about Xs and Os and roster decisions. Not my guy Dan Campbell.

He’s in town to talk about biting kneecaps off and roaming around with a pet lion. If you’re not juiced for this dude to be an NFL head coach, then you have no sense of humor.

He was built for Detroit and Detroit was built for him.
