The Detroit Lions have introduced Dan Campbell as their new head coach.  Campbell, who spent two seasons in Detroit as a player, comes to the franchise after spending five years as an assistant coach with the New Orleans Saints.  While he wouldn’t speculate on wins, Campbell says his coaching style will underscore work ethic.

“This team is going to take on the identity of this city," said Campbell. "Alright… and this city’s been down and it found a way to get up.  Alright?  It’s found a way to overcome adversity.”

Campbell will work alongside new Lions general manager Brad Holmes, who was introduced to the media earlier this week.
