Campbell adding Duce Staley to Lions' coaching staff


Dan Campbell vowed to "find the right staff" as head coach of the Lions.

Time will tell if he delivers. But it looks like he's off to a good start.

Campbell tabbed former Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn as his offensive coordinator over the weekend, and now he's bringing Eagles assistant head coach Duce Staley on board as well, according to Jason La Canfora.

Staley has been Philadelphia's assistant head coach since 2018 and its running backs coach since 2013.

Staley, 45, helped the Eagles build a top-10 rushing attack this season, despite their last-place finish in the NFC East. The Lions haven't had a top-10 rushing attack since the days of Barry Sanders.

Under Campbell, it sounds like Detroit will run it early and often.

Staley enjoyed a 10-year playing career before entering the coaching ranks, eclipsing 1,000 rushing yards in three of his seven seasons with the Eagles.
