New team, new look.
Matt Patricia is just hours away from being introduced as the next Detroit Lions head coach. Before that, he was the stout defensive coordinator of the New England Patriots, helping lead them to two Super Bowls (and a disappointing loss to the Eagles).
In New England, Patricia was known for a few things, like being a players coach and a leader. But most importantly, he was known for his epic beard.
Just look at that magnificent beard.
Patricia always would rock some kind of pullover or hoodie (Belichick style), a Patriots hat, and his giant beard during games.
However, with his new gig, Patricia went for a totally new look before his introductory press conference, trimming the beard way down and ditching the hat.

Hopefully he can do the a similar transformation with this Lions team, and get them to the promised land under his watch.
