They announced Tim Lappano will move from coaching tight ends to receivers and Jeremiah Washburn was promoted to offensive line coach.Detroit didn't retain receivers coach Shawn Jefferson, running backs coach Sam Gash or offensive line coach George Yarno when their contracts expired following the Lions' 4-12 season.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL...
