Lions’ Ben Johnson staying in Detroit

Ben Johnson has unfinished business in Detroit.

The Lions offensive coordinator informed the Seahawks and Commanders that he’s staying in Detroit, NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reported on Tuesday, per sources informed of the situation.

Seattle and Washington hold the two remaining head-coaching openings. Johnson was scheduled to meet with both clubs for interviews this week.

The 37-year-old Lions offensive coordinator was considered a hot candidate for a head-coaching job after jumpstarting Detroit’s offense the past two seasons. Since Johnson took over Dan Campbell’s offense in 2022, the Lions ranked fourth in points per game (26.9), first in total yards per contest (387.4) and fifth in yards per play (5.9).
