Leslie Frazier Not Going to Detroit


The Detroit Free-Press says the Lions have narrowed their coaching search to two or three names, none of which is Leslie Frazier.  Nicholas J. Cotsonika writes:

The Lions could be close to naming a head coach. They should be, anyway.

This is the time, and their list of candidates appears down to two or three — Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, Miami secondary coach Todd Bowles and perhaps San Diego defensive coordinator Ron Rivera.

This means it’s St. Louis or nowhere for Frazier, whose competition reportedly includes Steve Spagnuolo, another guy the Lions crossed off their list, Rex Ryan, Jason Garrett and Jim Haslett.  Actually, there could be one more job opening up:  Kansas City just hired Scott Pioli to run their deal and the conventional wisdom is that he will show Herm Edwards the door.  I have no idea whether Frazier would become a candidate for that job, or whether Herm would then be considered to replace Frazier as the Vikings‘ defensive coordinator.
