Joining the broadcast crew at the 2024 Pro Bowl Games, star Lions receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown was asked if he was surprised Ben Johnson decided to stay on as offensive coordinator, versus taking a job as a head coach of another club.
“I was a little surprised,” St. Brown said. “I’m excited — super excited. I know the whole squad is. I mean we can’t wait. We’ve got some unfinished business.”
It’s not the first time the Sun God has used the phrase. As Jeremy reports here, St. Brown said that’s what Johnson said drove the offensive coordinator to stay in Detroit.
With defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn and special teams coordinator Dave Fipp both staying as well, the braintrust remains together. A rare and perfect time to run it back and settle some unfinished business. PRINT THE T-SHIRTS!
