Lions CB Darius Slay spoke highly of HC Jim Caldwell, saying that “he’s probably the best coach I’ve ever had in my life.”

“Oh, man, he’s probably the best coach I’ve ever had in my life,” Slay mentioned during an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio. “He’s very calm, collected. I never think he’s on a hot seat because he’s always in a chill mode. He never talks during practice. He learned how to coach from a lot of great coaches in the league, so I don’t think he’s ever in the hot seat.

“He’s the best communicator ever. And I think that’s what just (brought) us together, because he never got out of control. We were 1-7, but he knew we had to win ballgames but he still kept his composure and he still trusted and believed in us and that’s why we went 6-2 in the last eight games.
