Matt Millen fired as Detroit Lions president

 The Detroit Lions president Matt Millen has been fired today, after the football team went 0-3 in the regular season, according to reports initiated by Fox Sports, without naming sources. According to the reports, Matt Millen was told of the football franchise decision on Tuesday night and was clearing his office today. The firing of Millen comes just two days after Detroit Lions Vice Chairman William Clay Ford Jr. told reporters that the president should leave his post, adding that he would personally fire Millen, if it was up to him. At this time no official report has come out from the Lions relating to Millen's possible termination.

 Matt Millen, who has been with the Lions for seven years, since 2001, has driven the football team to the worst record among the 32, going for 31-84 during his employment. Lions fans have long called for Matt Millen's resignation (or termination), especially after the Detroit Lions went for a perfect preseason and 0-3 in the regular. The Lions, who are in their bye week, remain one of the underdogs to win the Super Bowl this year with the whopping +40000 odds at Bookmaker.
