The Lions have scheduled their first interview to replace the fired Jim Caldwell.

ESPN’s Josina Anderson tweets that Detroit will interview their own defensive coordinator in Teryl Austin Tuesday, a move that’ll likely leave Caldwell detractors feeling a little nauseated.

Austin has been the Lions’ defensive coordinator since Caldwell was first hired by the team back in 2014. Since then Austin has had some success with the Detroit defense which may have peaked in 2015 and 2016 when the Lions finished 15th in total defense. Austin also has had his fair share of head coaching attraction during his time in Detroit.
