A person familiar with the situation says new Detroit head coach Jim Caldwell and Saints assistant Joe Lombardi have a agreed on deal for Lombardi to become the Lions' offensive co-ordinator.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Lions have not announced the hiring, which was first reported by ESPN.

Lombardi, the grandson of former Green Bay Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, has been an offensive assistant on Sean Payton's New Orleans staff since 2007. He was named quarterbacks coach in 2009, the season the Saints won their only Super Bowl over the Indianapolis Colts, who were then coached by Caldwell.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees has passed for more than 5,000 yards in a season three times with Lombardi as his position coach
