Detroit Lions Hire Rod Wood To Be Team President

The Detroit Lions have hired their new team president already.  After firing former president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew just 2 weeks ago, the Lions jumped to hire a new president in Rod Wood.  Wood has served as the president of the Ford Estates for the past 8 years.  While he is not from inside the organization, he is a Ford family employee making the hire a bit of a head scratcher.  The Lions also announced that the new general manager  will be hired by a Lions panel that is made up of Wood, Martha Ford, and her 4 children.  The Fords did say that they will use the NFL’s advisory panel to assist with the search, but that the panel of Fords will make the final decision.
