Below is the latest version of the Lions' list of head coach candidates. There aren't any additions since the last version of this post, but I have updated the interview dates and have made a couple formatting changes. The first change is that I crossed out Josh McDaniels since he has been hired by the Broncos. The other change is that I bolded the coaches that I believe are the leading candidates for the job. All have interviewed with the Lions and are reportedly drawing high interest from the team.
As usual, I will keep this updated with the latest news about the Lions' search for a new head coach.
