Detroit fans, your wish appears to have finally come true.
The Lions have finally removed team president and GM Matt Millen from his post, FOXSports.com has learned, unseating one of the most criticized executives in Detroit sports history.
Millen was informed of the move Tuesday night during a late-night high-level meeting. Wednesday morning several people within the building confirmed that he had large packing boxes in his office and he made his way around to different employees telling them of the move.
It is unclear if Millen was fired or removed himself from the equation but the news comes just days after Bill Ford, Jr. publicly stated he would have fired the GM if it was his decision.
The Lions have started off horribly and the groundswell for Millen's demise has once again been strong. That's nothing new — events like the Millen Man March, an in-game walkout protest, and calls for Millen's firing have been going on for years.
