There will be another change to the Detroit Lions coaching staff in 2021. Wide receivers coach Robert Prince has left the team and will be the wide receivers coach for the Houston Texans, per numerous reports including one from Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.

Prince was still listed on the Lions’ official website as the WR coach as of Friday morning but was gone by early afternoon. He will move onto Houston, where he will work under new head coach David Cullen.

Prince spent the last seven seasons with the Lions and was a desirable coaching candidate. He helped develop Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and others into better players. The Lions will no have to find a replacement, though there are numerous candidates to take the role on Dan Campbell’s staff.
