Lions | Bly likes teamís coaching additions

Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions CB Dre' Bly likes the changes the team has made to their coaching staff, including the hiring of head coach Rod Marinelli, defensive coordinator Donnie Henderson and offensive coordinator Mike Martz. "I think it's a great mixture," Bly said Thursday, Feb. 9. "We'll jell well together. I really feel like this year is going to be our year, because Mike Martz, he has credibility. He's had No. 1 offenses in this league. He's led a team to a Super Bowl. He had an offense that was called 'The Greatest Show on Turf.' I'm very excited about Mike." Last week Bly went to team headquarters and lobbied president Matt Millen to hire Martz. Bly was thrilled when Martz's hiring was announced Wednesday, Feb. 8. He said it was a move the veterans needed to see the team make. Bly thinks Marinelli and Henderson will help too, and he doesn't think Martz will have a problem stepping back to be a coordinator.
