The Detroit Lions hired Robert Prince as wide receivers coach.

Prince has coached receivers at Boise State and also been offensive coordinator.

He coached in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons, Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle Seahawks.

Former Lions safety Gerald Alexander praised Prince, who didn't coach troubled former Lions receiver Titus Young at Boise State, on Twitter.

“Intelligent," Alexander wroter. "Great energy and good teacher."
