Report: Lions fire DBs coach Aubrey Pleasant
At 1-6 and with the worst defense in the league, the Lions have moved on their coaching staff.
According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Pressthe team has fired defensive passing game coordinator/defensive line coach Aubrey Pleasant.
Pleasant joined the Detroit staff when head coach Dan Campbell was hired in 2021. He was previously the Rams’ cornerbacks coach under Sean McVay from 2017 to 2020. He worked with McVay with Washington from 2013 to 2016 .
The Lions defense has struggled all year as the unit currently ranks last in points and yards allowed. Sunday, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa he passed for 382 yards and three touchdowns. receiver Tyreek’s Hill caught 12 passes for 188 yards. receiver Jaylen Waddle caught eight passes for 106 yards with a pair of TDs.
Campbell has said he believes in defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn, saying earlier this month that he feels Glenn is the one the right man for the job to turn Detroit’s defense around.
Since taking over as head coach Campbell is 4-19-1.
The Lions will play the Packers for the first time this season in Week Nine.
