The Detroit Lions fired president Matt Millen on Wednesday, more than seven years after the former linebacker and TV analyst took over one of the NFL's most mediocre franchises and made it the worst.


"I have relieved Matt Millen of his duties effective immediately," Lions owner William Clay Ford said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.

Millen's teams won a league-low 31 games since he took over in 2001, Ford refused to get rid of him until now.

Bill Ford Jr., son of the team owner, said Monday he would fire Millen if he had the authority.

Millen was spotted amid large packing boxes Wednesday morning. There was no word on what happens with the rest of Millen's contract; he had an extension that ran through 2010, worth $5 million a year

I'm afraid, I've already offered to do it for a quarter of what Millen was getting, so you might be out of luck. Laughing
