The wait is finally over.
The Detroit Lions officially named Matt Patricia their new head coach Monday, one day after Patricia's New England Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII, 41-33.
The Lions targeted Patricia from the beginning of their search, both for his tremendous on-field success and his relationship with general manager Bob Quinn, and interviewed him exactly one month ago on Jan. 5.
