New Lions head coach Matt Patricia has found himself at the center of a Detroit News story that reported: he'd been arrested in March 1996 and indicted for aggravated sexual assault. 

The case collapsed when the accuser decided not to testify.

Michigan Radio sports commentator John U. Bacon joined Stateside today to discuss.

Listen above to hear what Lions fans think about the recent news coverage; how Matt Patricia should have disclosed this information before signing up with the Lions; and the difficulty of recovering your reputation once it’s lost.
