Millen out as Detroit Lions president/CEO

In a long overdue move, Matt Millen has been ousted from his job as president and CEO of the NFL's Detroit Lions. Over the course of seven-plus years, Millen took a mediocre franchise and turned it into the league's worst team, compiling a hideous 31-84 record during his tenure. His wife, Patty Millen, reportedly told ESPN's Chris Mortensen: "We're fine. In the world's view, this may look like failure. It's been a hard road, football-wise, but we've gotten a lot of eternal blessings. We'll move forward. I told him, 'You're out of football prison now' and we have a greater purpose."
