ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have hired Matt Harriss as vice president for football administration.

Harriss joins the Lions after spending 10 seasons with the New York Giants’ football operations department. In his first year with the Giants, Harriss assisted Ernie Accorsi, who then was in his final season with the team.

Accorsi, a former GM of the Giants, is now a special adviser to Lions team president Rod Wood.

The Lions also announced Friday that they have hired Harold Nash Jr. as the team’s strength and conditioning coach and Michael McCarthy as quality control-offensive line coach.
