LionsFans.com has learned that head coach Marty Mornhinweg has been relieved of his duties as head coach, according to a local Detroit radio station (WDFN).
The firing comes just one week after a web site (insidetheleague.com) reported that Millen would fire Mornhinweg following the Super Bowl, and would hire former 49ers' head coach as a replacement.
Following the report, the Detroit Lions immediately announced a press conference scheduled for 3:30 PM (EST). LionsFans.com will have coverage of the press conference immediately following the event.
In just two seasons under Mornhinweg, the Lions have tallied just 5 wins versus 27 losses, and failed to win a road game. Following the 2002 season, Mornhinweg was promised his job by Millen, a promise that apparently will not materialize.
