The Detroit Lions have announced the deal on their Web site, with no details, just a picture of Matt Millen and team owner William Clay Ford sitting together on a golf cart. I think Ford is saying, "You know, Matt, we've had the worst record in the league since you've been here." And Millen is saying, "That's true, but I do have those incriminating pictures of you."
An Associated Press story helpfully notes that after the Lions were one of the worst teams in history with Millen's first coach, Marty Mornhinweg, "Mariucci has had more success, going 11-21."
