Matt Patricia is confident he will remain as head coach of the Detroit Lions next season.

Patricia enters Week 17 of his first season with the Lions holding a 5-10 record.

"I'm pretty confident," Patricia said, via the Detroit News. "Everything for me, right now, is just keep moving forward and getting ready for the game this weekend. Like I said, I meet with Mrs. Ford every week, so they've been great. Her and her family have been great."
