Minnesota Vikings reportedly interested in Detroit Lions assistant as new defensive coordinator
In 2021, the Lions hired Pleasant to be their defensive backs coach and their passing game coordinator.
Given how young O’Connell is, one might assume he would want his defensive coordinator and offensive coordinator to have a significant amount of experience in the role in the past.
