The Lions announced the move Wednesday. Gregory began his coaching career in 2015 as a special teams quality control coach at Syracuse, where he played wide receiver and cornerback from 2002-05. Gregory played eight seasons as a defensive back in the NFL for the San Diego Chargers (2006-11) and New England Patriots (2012-13).

New Detroit coach Matt Patricia was on New England’s staff when Gregory played for the Patriots.
