Report: Ben Johnson to remain as Lions OC

Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson reportedly is staying in the Motor City next season.

NFL Network reported on Tuesday that Johnson informed the Seattle Seahawks and Washington Commanders that he’s remaining with the Lions. He previously interviewed for the Falcons’ head coaching position, but Atlanta opted to hire Raheem Morris instead.

Johnson, 37, has been credited as the architect of an offense that led Detroit to a 12-5 record and its first division title in 30 years. He joined the Lions in 2019 as an offensive quality control coach and held other titles until becoming the team’s offensive coordinator in 2022.

Prior to joining the Lions, Johnson was with the Miami Dolphins from 2012-18. He started his coaching career at Boston College, where he was a graduate assistant from 2009-10 before being promoted to tight ends coach for the 2011 season.

The Commanders and Seahawks reportedly will meet with Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald for their respective head coaching vacancies.

Washington fired Ron Rivera as head coach after four seasons on Jan. 8, while Seattle parted ways with Pete Carroll after 14 seasons on Jan. 10.
