Whisenhunt moves on, Lions look to next candidates story image

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Ken Whisenhunt, despite being tabbed by the experts, will not be the man to attempt to turn around the Detroit Lions.

San Diego's Offensive Coordinator and the former Cardinals Head Coach is on his way to Tennessee instead, to take over the Titans.

As for the Lions opening, it seems to be down to two men.

First is Baltimore Offensive Coordinator Jim Caldwell, who succeeded Tony Dungy as Head Coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

He spent a large chunk of his interview in Allen Park with quarterback Matthew Stafford, breaking down video and presumably showing how he can make him better.

Second is recently fired Titans Head Coach Mike Munchak.

His reputation is that of a disciplinarian, which appears desperately needed by the Lions.
