COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Former Texas A&M football player Dan Campbell is expected to be named the new head coach of the Detroit Lions.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting it's only a matter of time before the Lions and the Saints current tight ends coach agree to terms on the deal.

Campbell played for Texas A&M from 1995 to 1999. 

He's never been a coordinator in the NFL but he did go 5-7 in a 12-game stint as the Dolphins interim head coach in 2015.

Campbell has spent the last five seasons as an assistant coach on New Orleans staff.
