During a video conference on Sunday with reporters, Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Cory Undlin confirmed he’ll be on the field and also said he’ll be handling play-calling duties for the defense.
“I’ll be on the field, calling the defense, obviously,” Undlin said.
“I’ve got plenty of eyes up top, and just personally, there is a feel of being on the field,” he said. “Any time, for me, when you’ve got to go through another conduit to get it out there, it’s more efficient for me. You guys haven’t got to know me, but there’s an element of being in front of them and looking at them when you’re coaching them. That would be my preference and Matt (Patricia) completely agrees with that. I’m going to be down there, in it, on ’em, with ’em. It will be good.”
