With the power of facial hair and Detroit Lions football, we at Pride Of Detroit were given a chance to sit down with Lions running backs and assistant head coach Duce Staley. He joined us to talk your reader and listener questions, and shed light on the current Lions running backs and so much more.

Staley covered a good deal with us: what it’s been like to transition from being a running back to a running backs coach on game day mentally, what he sees in D’Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson, what he looks for in any good running back, and how the position has changed over the years.

He also discussed what it means to be an assistant head coach and the kind of responsibilities he’s given from head coach Dan Campbell, and his plans to check out the best restaurants Detroit has to offer.

Also, the facial hair. God, it keeps coming up. Don’t miss this episode, and find out everything Staley talked to us about!
