Lions hire GM Brad Holmes after he wasn't on original list

DETROIT (AP) Brad Holmes was not even a candidate when the Detroit Lions began their search for a general manager nearly two months ago.

After a process that included interviewing him and 11 others for the vacancy, Holmes won the Lions over and landed a job he didn't dream of when his NFL career began as a public relations intern in 2003.

"He stood out to us as the perfect fit," team owner Sheila Ford Hamp said on a Zoom call with reporters on Tuesday, days after the team agreed to a deal with Holmes.
