WEEK IN REVIEW: Lions continue to rebuild coaching staff

The Lions filled their defensive coordinator and special teams coordinator positions this week, hiring Cory Undlin and Brayden Coombs, respectively.

Undlin spent the last five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles as a defensive backs coach, where he won Super Bowl LII in 2017.

Coombs was with the Cincinatti Bengals for the last 10 seasons. He was their assistant special teams coordinator for the past seven seasons.

The Lions still have a couple more spots to fill on their coaching staff.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Wednesday that Lions Legend defensive tackle Alex Karras was voted into the HOF as a member of the 15-person Centennial Slate for the Class of 2020.

"We would like to congratulate the entire Karras family on the selection of Alex into the Pro Football Hall of Fame," Lions owner Martha Firestone Ford said in a statement.

"While we were thrilled to induct Alex into our most recent Pride of the Lions Class in 2018, today's announcement solidifies his place as not only one of the all-time great Lions players, but also one of the best to ever play in the NFL.

"We also would like to congratulate all of Alex's fellow Centennial Slate Hall of Fame inductees."
