Lions appear down to two

January 19, 2001|By DETROIT FREE PRESS

PONTIAC, Mich. - With two of the top prospects - Herman Edwards and Gary Kubiak - out of the running, San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and Lions interim coach Gary Moeller are emerging as the most likely candidates to receive Detroit's coaching job.

General manager and CEO Matt Millen said he still plans to interview Ravens defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis, but said he has no ties with Lewis the way Buffalo Bills general manager Tom Donohoe, who's also seeking a coach, does.

Millen said he doesn't expect to expand his original list of Edwards, the new New York Jets coach; Kubiak, who will remain in Denver; Lewis; Mornhinweg, and Moeller.

"We're just staying on track," Millen said. "Remember what I said from the beginning: You have a plan. You work your plan. You keep on working. Nothing catches you off-guard."
