Prince joined the Lions in 2014 as tight ends coach before taking over the offensive line. He also has NFL coaching experience with the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars.
He last coached at the collegiate level in 2013 as Rutgers' offensive coordinator. He also had stints at Alabama AM, South Carolina State, James Madison, Cornell, Virginia, and Kansas State.
Prince replaces Ed Warinner, who was promoted to offensive line coach last week.
