Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said today the team has re-signed all three of its coordinators to new contracts.
Gunther Cunningham (defense), Scott Linehan (offense) and Danny Crossman (special teams) will all return to the sideline next season.
The extensions actually occurred months ago during the regular season but were confirmed by Mayhew today.
Mayhew also expects to start working on an extension with head coach Jim Schwartz, who is entering the final year of his deal.
“We plan to start to work on that in the next couple weeks or so,” Mayhew said of the Schwartz deal.
He also said the team is now working on extensions with its assistant coaches.
“We hope to have all those guys back,” he said.
