Matt Patricia was officially introduced as the new head coach of the Detroit Lions on Wednesday, and the former defensive coordinator has cleaned up his look a bit for the newest chapter in his career. During his tenure with the New England Patriots, Patricia became known for his long, scraggly beard and often disheveled look. Now that he is the face of the Lions, Patricia decided his face should be a little less bushy. But don’t worry, Patricia isn’t retiring all of his signature looks. At one point during the press conference, he popped a pencil over his right ear, which was another token of his during his time with the Pats.
