Lions are looking for a new GM On Wednesday, they interviewed three candidates for the job.

Former Texas GM Rich Smith, Former Chiefs Scott Scott Pioli and Former Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff conducted interviews for the post on Wednesday.

Lions fired GM Bob Quinn two days after Thanksgiving. The team recently hired former NFL linebacker and FOX announcer Chris Spielman to serve as special advisor to owner Sheila Ford Hamp.

Lions last won a playoff game in 1991. They have made it to the playoffs several times since then, but have not been successful in the postseason.

Lions are also looking for a head coach. They will probably hire a GM first.
