The Detroit Lions will not punish head coach Matt Patricia over sexual assault allegations from over 20 years ago.

ESPNs Adam Schefter tweeted Monday afternoon, “NFL determined that neither the Lions nor Matt Patricia will be subject to any discipline in regards to previous allegations made against Detroits HC, per sources. The league met last week with the Lions and Patricia.” (RELATED: DETROIT LIONS SHOULDNT FIRE MATT PATRICIA OVER OLD SEXUAL ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS)

Im glad to see this decision out of the Lions. This is America and you are innocent until proven guilty. We cant let unproven allegations from two decades ago destroy a mans career and life.

This would be vastly different if Patricia was convicted of something, but he wasnt. That has to count for something, especially when its allegations about something that happened over two decades ago. Call me crazy, but I dont think thats any reason for the Lions to be punishing the Patricia.

Hopefully, this whole situation is just crazy to me. It made no sense how an allegation of sexual misconduct from 1996 surfaces in the off-season, and becomes a major story. He wasnt convicted when he was accused. Lets move on, and get back to focusing on football.
