The worst-kept secret in the NFL is that New England Patriots Matt Patricia is about to be hired by the Lions.
During the third quarter of the Patriots-Eagles game, Al Michaels, an NBC commentator who is covering his 10th Super Bowl, said that Matt, who was being shown on a split screen with Philadelphia coach Doug Pederson, was about be announced as the new Detroit Pistons coach in about 48 hours.

This was nothing more than a simple mistake that Al corrected immediately. Though we imagine what was the reaction of Stan Van Gundy when he heard he was getting replaced later this week.
