The Detroit Lions have filled the biggest remaining opening on their staff with Cory Undlin set to take over as defensive coordinator, Benjamin Raven of Mlive reports.  This according to ESPN.

Undlin has been the defensive backs coach for the Philadelphia Eagles since 2015, after working as an assistant for the Denver Broncos for three seasons. It’s an interesting position to step into with defensive-minded coach Matt Patricia leading the way for the Lions. But, Undlin and Patricia have familiarity after starting their careers together as coaching assistants for the New England Patriots in 2004.

After working with Patricia and the Patriots, he went on to a number of different roles for the next eight years with the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, Broncos and Eagles. When Doug Pederson was named Eagles coach back in 2015, he decided to keep Undlin off of former coach Chip Kelly’s staff. Since then, the Lions new defensive coordinator has dealt with seemingly never-ending list of injuries.
