Has he interviewed anywhere yet? Or has anyone asked? I suspect if it's Patricia, he probably stays.

3rd, 23rd,13th and 21st in ppg defense

Turnovers on offense hurt this year ranking though

I highly suspect Austin took this job knowing that Lewis is a bad start from getting canned and Austin would take over.

He also interviewed for the lions hc job so the fact he took a dc job either means 1) he knows weve already hired a coach and for some reason the lions haven't announced it 2) he knows the lions are a joke and he'd rather jump ship now.

I'd say it's more likely #1. He knows he's not getting the Lions job and would likely get canned by the new HC.....especially if it's a defensive guy.

He took a good job that will likely have a vacancy within the next two years.

Smart move. He has a good year in 2018 and he'll almost certainly get a HC job in 2019.
