Report: Lions Remove Matt Millen

Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com is reporting that the Lions have "removed" Matt Millen from his job with the team. Glazer goes on to say that as of right now it isn't known if Millen was fired or if he left on his own accord, but both are equally likely scenarios thanks to Bill Ford Jr. His comments earlier this week could have prompted his father and team owner, William Clay Ford, to finally make the decision that Millen has to go. At the same time, the comments could have made it impossible for Millen to continue to work for the team considering someone in the organization publicly criticized him.

Whether Millen was fired or left on his own doesn't really make a difference as the main thing is that he is gone. No longer will he be the Lions' team president or general manager, meaning that our wish has finally come true. I have waited for this day for years and honestly can't believe it finally is here. At times it seemed like Millen would never be fired or leave on his own. After all, the Lions went 31-84 during the Millen era and only now is he actually gone.

I'll have much more throughout the day as this story develops. In the mean time, mark down the date on your calendar, because this is a day every Lions fan should celebrate.
