Reports: Patricia Set To Become Next Lions Head Coach
While nothing will be finalized until the Patriots' postseason run is over, it is expected that the decision has been made by both parties.
Patricia is the first of three New England assistants to have received interviews for head coaching jobs to get and take a job.
Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is considered to be the front runner for the open Indianapolis job, while defensive assistant Brian Flores is in the running for the Arizona job. Flores could be promoted to coordinator in New England, if he doesn't get the job in Arizona.
