Matt Millen’s tenure as the Detroit Lions’ president and GM is over, Fox Sports reports. His removal came after an executive meeting last night, and Millen reportedly packed up his office this morning. Millen, 50, was among the most reviled executives in sports—with even the son of owner William Clay Ford saying recently he would fire Millen if it were his decision.
It is unclear if Millen—who won four Super Bowls during 12 seasons as an NFL linebacker—resigned or was formally fired. But with the Lions at a league-worst 31-84 since he took over in 2001, and fans staging in-game walkouts known as “Millen Man Marches”, the consensus has been clear. Detroit started this season 0-3.
