Jim Caldwell had his introductory press conference for the Detroit Lions. Here are a few things team president Tom Lewand, General Mananger Martin Mayhew, and Jim Caldwell had to say today.

Tom Lewand:

-”Leadership, experience, a sound football philosophy, intelligence, communication skills, integrity accountability, discipline those are things time in and time out we heard when people were describing Jim Caldwell.”

-”Every person who’s come in contact with Jim Caldwell speaks extremely highly of not only his character but his football intelligence and his ability to lead a football team.”

-He also made it very clear that they did not “settle for Jim Caldwell.”

Martin Mayhew:

-”It’s important to have a leader of men and Jim Caldwell is that man.”

-Mayhew thinks it’s very important that their next head coach brought “confidence, credibility and experience with quarterbacks.” “(Jim) has exactly what this football team needs.”

-”Ozzie newsome, Bill Polian (and Tony Dungy) gave glowing reviews and recommendations of Jim.” “He fit profile,” and is “very knowledgeable, does schemes, and interviewed extremely well.”

-”This is a guy we can achieve great things with. For that reason we selected Jim Caldwell as our next head coach”
