Barry named Lions D-coordinator
Bucs linebackers coach Joe Barry will be named the Detroit Lions defensive coordinator today, a team official confirmed.
Barry will be reunited with his father-in-law, Lions coach Rod Marinelli to direct their Tampa Two defense.
Barry replaces Donnie Henderson, who was fired as defensive coordinator on Tuesday. A news conference is scheduled at the team's headquarters later today.
The Lions attempted to hire Barry last season but the Bucs denied permission for him to interview.
