<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Helvetica, verdana, ariel">quote:</font><HR> Fox Sports broadcaster and former NFL linebacker Matt Millen is set to take over as the Detroit Lions new president and general manager, according to the Detroit News. Millen is expected to make considerable changes to the entire structure of the Lions over the coming weeks. One such change might include the removal of Gary Moeller, who signed a three-year pact when he was named as Bobby Ross' replacement during the season. Other potential changes include the ousting of Chuck Schmidt, the team's Chief Operating Officer and Ron Hughes, the VP of player personnel. Already on Millen's short-list for coaching candidates is Herman Edwards, Tampa's assistant head coach; Marvin Lewis, the Ravens defensive coordinator, Mike Mularkey, who was recently –promoted to the Steelers offensive coordinator and John Tice, a fast-rising prospect that handles the Vikings offensive line. Millen, who will make a cool $12 million over four years, was regarded as one of the up and coming talents in the broadcast field. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I'll give him this much, he knows how to assemble a wish list.
