DETROIT (AP) -Bill Ford Jr. has seen enough of the way team president Matt Millen is running his father's Detroit Lions.
The Ford Motor Co. executive chairman spoke to reporters Monday after a Detroit Economic Club meeting. The vice chairman of the Lions said he was disappointed in the team's performance and said fans deserve better.
When asked, Ford said Millen should leave the team, but he didn't have the authority to make such a significant change.
His father, William Clay Ford, is the owner and chairman of the franchise.
The Lions are 0-3 this season and an NFL-worst 31-84 since hiring Millen, who won Super Bowls as a linebacker and was an acclaimed TV analyst but had no front-office experience when he was hired in Detroit.
