Detroit Lions Wide Receivers Coach Shawn Jefferson Re-Signs With Team

The Detroit Lions are set to go into the 2012 season with the same head coach, coordinators and position coaches they had in 2011. Jim Schwartz still has a year on his deal, all of the coordinators re-signed shortly after the team's loss to the New Orleans Saints in the playoffs and the last of the unsigned position coaches, wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson, got a new deal this week. From MLive:

Detroit re-signed receivers coach Shawn Jefferson, and all of its coaches from the 2011 season are now under contract, according to a league source. Jefferson was the only coach who had not re-signed, but is now officially under contract.

Jefferson received interest from other NFL teams and reportedly had some offers come his way. He decided to pass them up to stay with the Lions and continue to have the ability to coach Calvin Johnson and the Lions' other receivers.

Secondary coach Tim Walton was in a similar situation. He had an opportunity come his way from the St. Louis Rams but decided to remain with the Lions.
