Matt Patricia doesn't have to worry about his job security this winter.
The Lions organization announced Tuesday its decision to keep both the head coach and general manager Bob Quinn.
Patricia has been under fire, and legitimate questions swirled around his status after his Lions took a step backward in the win-loss category this season, going from 6-10 in his first campaign to 3-10-1 with two games left to play. He said Monday as long as his key card works, he's going to continue to go to work and give it his fullest effort until those in charge "have to throw me out."
"We expect to be a playoff contender," Ford said, per the team's official website. "That means playing meaningful games in December."
