Lions' List of Head Coach Candidates (Updated on Jan. 6)

Since there have been so many changes since I originally posted this, below is an updated version of the Lions' list of head coach candidates.  I decided to go ahead and add Brian Billick to the list, even though there are conflicting reports about whether or not he is actually a candidate.  I tend to think he isn't, but I added him to the list anyways.  I did the same with Jim Harbaugh, though I don't want to believe he is actually a candidate.

Anyways, here is the updated version of the list:

Coach Team Current Job

Brian Billick None Color commentator for FOX TBD
Todd Bowles Dolphins Assistant/Secondary Coach Yes (January 7)
Leslie Frazier Vikings Defensive Coordinator Yes (January 9)
Jason Garrett Cowboys Offensive Coordinator Yes (January 5)
