In late September, the belief was Caldwell had received a multi-year contract extension from the Lions that stretched beyond 2018, insinuating his job would remain safe after this season.
In fact, Caldwell's extension is merely for one year, sources say, with an option following next season. But the contract extension he received won't factor into it. After a seven-win campaign in 2015-16, the Lions responded by going 9-7 and making the postseason for the second time in Caldwell's tenure past year.
Jim Caldwell's contract contains a guarantee for 2018 only, with the Lions having the option to extend the deal, a source confirmed to ESPN.
With just a one-season commitment beyond 2017, this contract language makes it far more tenable for the team to part ways with the coach after the season, if general manager Bob Quinn determines he'd like to go a different direction.
Caldwell has coached the Lions to a.550 winning percentage during his four years with the organization, the best of any full-time coach during the Super Bowl era. There have been questions about Caldwell's job security for a few years, but that deal theoretically put any concerns to rest.
