Lions | Lewis Refutes Retirement, Harrington Speculation

Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Sherman Lewis, who will retire at the end of January, refuted a recent story that suggested he was forced out as coordinator; and secondly, that he wrote letters to management expressing his doubts regarding QB Joey Harrington's long-term development, reports Jay Clemons of DetroitLions.com. "The suggestion that I sent letters to Mr. Ford, Bill Ford and [general manager Matt Millen] regarding [QB Joey Harrington] is ludicrous," Lewis said. "I did not send any letters as indicated. To insinuate that my retirement is anything but my desire is equally absurd. No one in the organization knew anything about my retirement until the day after the Tennessee game when I informed [head coach Steve Mariucci] of my intent to retire and spend more time with my family."
