Happy Ending for Player Who Detroit Lions Cut on His Birthday

Detroit Lions veteran long snapper Don Muhlbach was cut on his birthday, which lead to to Lions Coach Dan Campbell calling himself an A-hole for having to make the brutal cut.

Now he’s back into the organization as an assistant following that savage birthday cut.

In his new role as a special assistant, Muhlbach will “support executive vice president and general manager Brad Holmes, president and CEO Rod Wood and head coach Dan Campbell with various projects across the team’s football and business operations,” the team said in a statement.

Muhlbach said he’s excited for the opportunity to remain with the Lions, and that he looks forward to “bringing a winning culture to Detroit.”

It didn’t hurt that Muhlbach and Dan Campbell were teammates for three seasons with the Lions.
