BREAKING NEWS: Matt Millen Finally Out in Detroit

John GarciaCorrespondent ISeptember 24, 2008

Congratulations Lion's Fans, according to, Matt Millen is no longer the Detroit Lions team president.

Often called the worst team official in the history of sports, Lions owner's son Bill Ford Jr. publicly announced he would fire Millen if he had the chance.

Apparently, the move was made during a meeting late last night. It is still unclear whether Millen resigned or was fired.

While Millen was in office for Detroit, the Lions held an NFL-worst 31-84 record. Millen was hired in 2001 despite a lack of experience and remarkably was able to stay on until now.
