The Lions have confirmed the signing of all of their assistant coaches for the 2012 season.
Defensive backs coach Tim Walton and receivers coach Shawn Jefferson were the last to sign on the dotted line.
Walton interviewed with the Rams for their assistant defensive coordinator position last week, but ultimately decided to rejoin the Lions.
The Lions announced the signing of coordinators Gunther Cunningham (defense), Scott Linehan (offense) and Danny Crossman (special teams) earlier this month.
“I think we have a good group of coaches mixed with experience and younger guys, some former players, some guys that never played, but I like that dynamic and I like the consistency,” Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said after the season. “We were consistent from a preparation standpoint, from a game plan standpoint, from week-to-week.”
The Lions coaching staff has remained one of the most consistent since Schwartz took over in 2009.
