Next head coach for the Lions?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Tedford

The story is that Tedford is talking with the Lions about the HC vacancy. The guy has CFL playing experience having played on 4 different CFL teams. He has successful experience coaching in the U.S. although not in the NFL.

I wonder why a coaching position with an NFL team be it OC or HC didn't come up. I've never heard of the guy. I guess it's because the last time he played in the CFL was 26 years ago. He did some coaching work with the Stamps from '89 to '91 but since then he's been in the U.S. ever since. It will be interesting to see what happens.
