Detroit Lions President, General Manager and all-around incompetent executive Matt Millen is no longer running the team into the ground. Jay Glazer reports:
FOXSports.com has learned that the Lions have finally removed team president and GM Matt Millen from his post, unseating one of the most criticized executives in Detroit sports history.Millen is the worst general manager in NFL history, and there is no close second. The Lions were a 9-7 team when he took them over after the 2000 season, and they've gone 31-84 since then. Thank you, Bill Ford Jr.
Millen was informed of the move last night during a late-night high-level meeting. This morning several people within the building confirmed that he had large packing boxes in his office and he made his way around to different employees telling them of the move.
It is unclear if Millen was fired or removed himself from the equation but the news comes just days after Bill Ford, Jr. publicly stated he would have fired the GM if it was his decision but he lacked the authority to do so.
