The team said Tuesday that Jim Caldwell has been hired as the new coach and will be introduced at a news conference Wednesday.

The Lions are giving Caldwell another chance to be an NFL head coach.

The Indianapolis Colts tight end had never played a down in the NFL for a coach other than Tony Dungy. So when Dungy stepped down in January, Clark remembers bracing for the worst. "A new guy wants to come in and [say], 'This is how I do it. This is how we did it back then,' " Clark said. "And they want to do that ." But 11 months into the Jim Caldwell era in Indianapolis, Clark admits nothing has changed -- especially not the winning.

You don't send a rookie to do a most valuable player's job. The Indianapolis Colts reminded everyone of that Sunday, replacing three-time MVP Peyton Manning with first-year backup Curtis Painter in the third quarter . . . And bidding farewell to the chance for a perfect season. The playoff-minded New York Jets took full advantage of the quarterback swap, quickly erasing a five-point deficit and muscling their way to a 29-15 victory before a bitterly disappointed packed house at Lucas Oil Stadium.

It's a good thing Wake Forest Coach Jim Caldwell didn't give in to Ben Sankey's frequent requests for a position change. During his four-year career at Wake Forest, Sankey, a backup quarterback until this season, asked for a switch so he could get more playing time. Caldwell told Sankey to sit tight and good things would happen. It did in the Aloha Bowl on Saturday, when Sankey ended his collegiate career by guiding the Demon Deacons (7-5) to a 23-3 victory over Arizona State (6-6).
