Defensive coordinator Mike Benevides was promoted and announced as the team’s new head coach on December 13, 2011. Several veteran players left the team or were released prior to the start of the 2012 season. Defensive back Tad Kornegay was released by the Lions while all-star linebacker Solomon Elimimian and defensive tackle Aaron Hunt signed with the Minnesota Vikings and the Montreal Alouettes, respectively. The Lions did, however, manage to resign veteran cornerbacks Dante Marsh and Ryan Phillips during the free-agency period, as well as all-star defensive back Lin-J Shell and cornerback Byron Parker.
On December 19, 2014, Jeff Tedford was named the 25th Head Coach in franchise history after Mike Benevides had been let go November 20. The 2015 season saw the emergence of rookie quarterback Jonathan Jennings, who took over as the starter from Travis Lulay midway through the season. The 2015 season was the only one for Tedford, as he resigned after only one season where he led the lions to a 7-11 record, finishing third in the west and losing to Calgary in the playoffs. Upon Tedford’s resignation, Wally Buono announced that he would return as head coach in 2016.
In Buono’s first season back at the helm of the Lions, he guided the team to its first second-place finish in the West since 1986 with a 12-6 record and defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the West Semi-Final, only to lose to Calgary in the West Final. The following season, the Lions would miss the playoffs for the first time since 1996, finishing in 5th and last place in the West with a 7-11 record. On November 30, 2017, Buono stepped down from his position as General Manager, being replaced in that stead by Ed Hervey. Buono will stay on as head coach in 2018, but it will also be his last season as coach for the team.
