The Detroit Lions have officially Dan Campbell as their new head coach and principal owner Shelia Ford Hamp and team president Rod Wood have released statements on the move.

Like with their statements following the hiring of general manager Brad Holmes, both offer glowing reviews of Campbell and have high hopes for what he can accomplish in Detroit.

Shelia Ford Hamp

“This is an exciting day for our organization as we introduce Dan Campbell as the new head coach of the Detroit Lions. With more than 20 years of experience as both a coach and player in the National Football League, Dan knows the rigors of professional football and what it takes to be successful. He will help promote the culture we want to establish across our organization, while also bringing with him high energy, a respect for the game and an identity with which everyone can align themselves.”

Rod Wood

“Dan’s passion for this opportunity was evident throughout our interview process. When we began the search for a head coach, it was imperative that we find the right leader who values our commitment to building a winning culture based on organizational alignment and collaboration. The leadership Dan has exemplified throughout his football career has prepared him for this next step, and we are excited to support him as our new head coach.”
