New Lions coach Jim Caldwell continued filling his staff Saturday, adding former Rutgers offensive coordinator Ron Prince as assistant head coach and tight ends coach.
Prince, 44, was the head coach at Kansas State from 2006-08 and finished with a 17-20 record and one bowl appearance.
He was an assistant line coach for the Indianapolis Colts when Caldwell was head coach in 2010-11 and most of his experience is coaching offensive line.
Before going to Kansas State, Prince was at Virginia from 2001-05, and he coached the offensive line for two seasons before being promoted to offensive coordinator.
He also spent two seasons as an assistant offensive line coach with the Jacksonville Jaguars before going to Rutgers in 2013.
Prince's hire confirms reports that Lions tight ends coach Bobby Johnson, who was officially retained by the team Friday, will coach a different position group in 2014.
