Duce Staley came to Detroit's coaching staff in 2021 in Dan Campbell's first season as head coach. Staley's impact was immediately felt on the running game, helping the Lions reach the most yards per carry (4.42) in a season since 1998, when the team averaged 4.43 yards per rush. Staley's presence left a noticeable mark on RB D'Andre Swift's development with the young running back making meaningful strides in his second season. Under Staley's tutelage in 2021, Swift became the first Lions running back since 2014 to produce 1,000 scrimmage yards in a season.
