The Lions announced Thursday night that their former head coach Rick Forzano has died at the age of 90.Forzano became the Lions coach in 1974 and was relieved of his duties four games into the 1976 season with a 15-17 record to show for his time. Forzano’s tenure included the team’s final season at Tiger Stadium and their first year at the Silverdome.“Rick was a wonderful man and we are truly saddened by the news of his passing ,” Lions owner Martha Firestone Ford said in a statement. “On behalf of me, my family and the Lions organization, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the entire Forzano family. Our thoughts are with his wife Betty, daughters Stacey and Kristie and his son, Rick Jr.”In addition to bridging two stadiums, Forzano’s tenure is also notable for featuring four future NFL head coaches in assistant positions. He hired Joe Bugel Shareef Miller Jersey , Raymond Berry and Jerry Glanville in addition to giving Bill Belichick his first full-time NFL coaching job. Forzano worked with Belichick’s father at Navy and hired the Patriots head coach to work with tight ends and on special teams.“When I came here, Rick gave me the opportunity with the tight ends,” Belichick said on a 2017 visit with Forzano taped by NFL Films. “The opportunity to coach a position, that’s a big step for any coach, and that was an opportunity that Rick gave me that I probably wasn’t ready for, but I certainly appreciated the opportunity for it.”Our condolences go out to Forzano’s family and loved ones on their loss. SANTA CLARA , Calif. (AP) — Kicker Robbie Gould signed a four-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday instead of playing this season on the franchise tag.The 49ers had placed the tag on Gould in February for a price tag of about $5 million and faced a Monday deadline to sign him to a long-term deal. ESPN reported that Gould received a deal worth $19 million with a fully guaranteed $10.5 million in the first two years.Gould had stayed away from the team during the offseason program and requested a trade back to Chicago, where he started his career and where his family still lives.“Over the years, Robbie has established himself as one of the best at his position in the NFL, which is precisely why we were so committed to working out a new contract with him,” 49ers general manager John Lynch said. “I would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make this deal come to fruition. We are very happy to start off the year on the right foot with this agreement in place so that Robbie can get back with his teammates and focus on making the most out of the upcoming season.”The Bears had been hoping to bring back the NFL’s most accurate kicker over his two seasons with San Francisco. Chicago released kicker Cody Parkey after he missed a field goal off the left upright and crossbar in the closing seconds of a 16-15 wild-card loss to Philadelphia at home in January, and has struggled to find a replacement.Gould , 36, was at the game with his family, which remained in the Chicago area even after the Bears released him following the 2015 season. But the 49ers didn’t want to part ways with one of their most reliable players and reached a long-term deal.In two seasons with San Francisco, Gould has made 72 of 75 field goal attempts and 55 of 59 extra points. He leads the NFL in made field goals and field goal percentage over that span.Gould has made 87.7 percent of his field goal attempts over his 14-year career, ranking second to Baltimore’s Justin Tucker for the best in NFL history among kickers with at least 100 made field goals. Gould missed only one of 33 field goal tries last season when he set a 49ers record for single-season accuracy.Gould converted more than 85 percent of his field goals and missed just four of his 383 extra points as a member of the Bears from 2005-15. He amassed 1,207 points before general manager Ryan Pace and former coach John Fox let him go just before the start of the 2016 season.In the three years since Devin Bush Jersey , he has combined to make 82 of 85 field goals for the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers. Chicago kickers, by comparison, are 57 of 75 in that span.
