DETROIT, Mich (WLNS) – The Detroit Lions have decided to bring embattled head coach Jim Caldwell back next season.

New Lion General Manager Bob Quinn announced his decision today.

Caldwell was hired by the Lions in January 2014 and immediately turned around the struggling franchise, going 11-5 in his first season.

This past season the Lions started 1-7, then turned the season around to end with a 7-9 record.

6 Sports Director Fred Heumann will have more on this developing story online and on 6 News at 6 and 11.
