Brunell was a long-time NFL quarterback so this is an interesting name to be linked to Detroit’s staff at the very least.
He would join a number of former players on the Lions’ coaching staff should he get the job. He currently hosts a radio show in Jacksonville.
Brunell, 50, played 19 seasons at quarterback for the Packers, Jaguars, Washington, Saints and Jets. He was a three-time Pro Bowler and won a Super Bowl as a backup with the Saints in 2009.
Since retiring, Brunell has dabbled in numerous business ventures as well as coaching high school football.
