Lions fire DBs coach Aubrey Pleasant after awful defensive start

Mired with the league’s worst record and the most points allowed per game of any team, the Detroit Lions have made their first coaching move. Per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the Lions have fired defensive backs coach Aubrey Pleasant.

Pleasant was in charge of the cornerbacks and safeties in Detroit for the entirety of the Dan Campbell coaching tenure, dating back to the start of the 2021 season. The Detroit secondary has struggled through injuries but also endemic communication and schematic execution errors throughout Pleasant’s run as the position coach.
