Matt Millen removed as Lions team president, CEO

The Matt Millen era is over in Detroit.

The embattled Lions team president and chief executive officer is leaving the position, his wife told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

FOXSports.com first reported Wednesday that Millen had been removed from his position. It was unclear whether he had been fired or had resigned, according to the report.

The move comes two days after Bill Ford Jr., the son of team owner William Clay Ford, publicly said he would have fired Millen if he had the authority to do so.

The Lions are 31-84 under Millen. But until this point, the Lions have resisted widespread demands from fans seeking Millen's ouster.

According to the report, Millen had informed a number of employees about the change on Wednesday morning and had large packing boxes in his office.

ESPN NFL senior analyst Chris Mortensen contributed to this report.

My dad once grabbed one side of a keg and fled through the woods to evade police. On the other side of the keg...Matt Millen. He played football for a team about 25 minutes away from where I grew up.

Understandable. Millen apparently was a fantastic, tough player and a great announcer. Sad he couldn't find success as a GM.

Yup, honestly, the Lions should have never made him GM. He did what he could, he just never had experience as a GM on any level.
