Report: New England Patriots DC Matt Patricia is likely to be the next Detroit Lions head coach.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Patricia is likely to take over once the season is over, and after working out contract details.

The Lions have been searching for a coach since firing Jim Caldwell, after they finished 9-7 in 2017.
