Lions Fire GM Martin Mayhew and President Tom Lewand

It appears that Martha Ford is making her mark on the Detroit Lions.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Lions are getting their house cleaning started in the middle of the season by firing general manager Martin Mayhew and team president Tom Lewand.

William Clay Ford, Mrs. Ford's late husband, was known as loyal to a fault, often retaining front office personnel and head coaches much longer than was clear that change needed to happen.

Mrs. Ford has been something of a wild card after taking over following her husband's death. She has been active in league affairs and has been quite visible around team events in ways that ownership was not in the later years of Mr. Ford's life. But, it remained unclear whether she would be more aggressive in pushing for change or remain slow to react when change was necessary.

It appears we have an answer.



For now, Jim Caldwell will remain the head coach.



Sweeping out the heads of the front office means Jim Caldwell's days are numbered as well. It wouldn't be a shock to see him complete the season as the team's head coach, but a new front office will surely have the freedom to choose their own head coach.
