ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP/WOOD) — Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn says he has not decided whether to retain or fire coach Jim Caldwell.

Quinn was introduced as the Lions’ GM on Monday.

His top task is to figure out Caldwell’s future with the team. Caldwell has two years left on his four-year contract. He is 18-15over two years, including a loss in a wild-card game last year.

Quinn worked within the New England Patriots’ personnel department for 16 years, including the past four as their director of pro scouting. He leaves a supporting role with a successful franchise to lead one with a single playoff victory since winning the 1957 NFL title.
