Lions Hire Jim Washburn As A Defensive Assistant
Former Philadelphia Eagles defensive line coach Jim Washburn has agreed to join the Detroit Lions' coaching staff as a defensive assistant, according to a person informed of Washburn's impending hire.
The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Lions haven't made the move official, said Washburn's exact title has yet to be determined.
The Lions already have a defensive line coach in Kris Kocurek, who is expected to remain in that role on Jim Schwartz's staff. Washburn, who left the practice field at the Senior Bowl with Schwartz today, will likely assist Kocurek in working with a talented line that includes defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley.
Washburn, who with Lions head coach Jim Schwartz when Schwartz was a defensive coordinator in Tennessee, will join his son, Jeremiah, on the Lions' staff.
