The Detroit Lions announce that Boise State offensive coordinator Robert Prince will become their new wide receivers coach.

The Detroit Lions have named Robert Prince as their wide receivers coach for the 2014 NFL season.

The Boise State offensive coordinator has spent several years coaching in the NFL previously, with stints at the Atlanta Falcons and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Lions are expected to add to their receiving corps in the off-season to provide support for single-season receiving yards record holder Calvin Johnson.

The NFC North side have had a change of coaching staff after missing out on a place in the playoffs in the 2013 campaign.

Calvin Johnson #81 of the Detroit Lions warms up prior to the start of the pre-season game against the New York Jets at Ford Field on August 9, 2013
