Detroit Lions will be missing interim head coach Darrell Bevel for Saturday match against Tampa Bay Buccaneers According to COVID-19 protocol.. Wide receiver coach Robert Prince will take over the position of head coach instead of bevel, and quarterback coach Sean Ryan will take charge of the team’s playcall.
Earlier this week, Lions announced that they would close the team facility. Two members of the organization tested positive for coronavirus.. After performing contact tracing, Bevel was determined to be among those who needed to miss the next game due to the risk of outbreaks.
Bevels need to avoid contact with coaches and players, but they can continue to work until the match. He says he is more likely to be a “madman” watching the game as a spectator rather than a coach.
“You may have to find a place to see it yourself,” Bevel said of the match on Saturday. “As you know, I can’t even tell you what it will be. I know how it was sitting, but sitting down, I can’t be there I know I’m completely disappointed with. Stay there for my guys and for all the respect I have for these players. “
Lions want to avoid the outbreak, but coaching staff have been hit hard by recent COVID cases. Defensive coordinator Corey Undrin will play on Saturday, with defensive line coach Bo Davis, linebacker Thai Mackenzie and defensive back coach Stephen Gregory.
