The Lions have hired Marcus Robertson as an defensive assistant/secondary coach.
Robertson, the Titans secondary coach last year, spent 19 seasons with the organization, including 10 as a player. He played two seasons when Lions coach Jim Schwartz was a defensive assistant and linebackers coach for the Titans. He later worked as an assistant secondary coach when Schwartz was defensive coordinator.
Robertson, an all-pro safety in 1993 and 97, replaces defensive assistant Brandon Fisher, who will join his father, Jeff, with the Rams next season.
Over the course of his 12-year NFL career, Robertson played in 157 games (144 starts) with 851 tackles, 24 interceptions and 1.5 sacks.
