The upheaval of the Detroit Lions staff continues.

Bob Quinn is taking his new job quite seriously. During his introductory press conference, Quinn discussed the importance of every single job in the program. "Everyone needs to be on the same page to be in the best position with the right plan. Every person in this building has a job to do and each job is important," Quinn remarked.

Having overturned much of the scouting department last week, Quinn turned his attention to the strength and conditioning staff and is reportedly starting anew:

Jason Arapoff and Ted Rath were the two main coaches in charge of strength and conditioning. Arapoff, according to the team's website, came to Detroit in 2001 with 13 years of experience under his belt with the Washington Redskins. He was most recently promoted within the Lions organization to Coordinator of Physical Development in 2006. Rath has only been with the team since 2009 as an assistant.

Quin has made it very clear that he wants a certain kind of person in place at every single position within the organization. At this point, any department is liable to be completely rebuilt at any moment.
