Don't you find it amazing that the last head coach to leave the Lions and be hired somewhere else as head coach was George Wilson, Bobby Laynes last coach as a Lion?

Note - we only count Coach's who were signed as head coach, interim coaches who did not receive a head coach contract do not count (IE Dick Jauron)
