Report: Detroit Lions 'expected to add Dave Fipp as special teams coordinator'

Free Press' Dave Birkett is reporting that the Detroit Lions "are expected to add Dave Fipp as special teams coordinator". After initially blocking an interview request, the Philadelphia Eagles granted Fipp permission to interview with the Lions, and they pounced at the opportunity. Fipp helped turn around the Eagles' special teams fairly quickly and in his second, third, and fourth seasons, they ranked among the tops in the league, but over the last four seasons, they plateaued. He would join a Lions special teams unit that ended last season ranked 3rd in Gosselin's rankings, 11th in DVOA, and 7th in PFF system under coordinator's Brayden Coombs and interim Marquise Williams
