Eminem retracts diss track threat on Lions’ offensive coordinator Ben Johnson

Ben Johnson, the offensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions, was highly sought after for head coaching positions this offseason due to his role in the team’s successful season.

Despite interest from teams such as the Washington Commanders and Seattle Seahawks, he decided to stay in Detroit, which pleased hardcore Lions fan Eminem.

Eminem, the legendary rapper from Detroit, joked that he would “stop recording his diss track” after learning the news

He tweeted, ‘Guess I should stop recording this diss track..!! Lol!! @ Ben Johnson Thank you for staying!!! We can’t break this team up ESPECIALLY since I’M on it!!!

Eminem expressed his frustration on DJ Whoo Kidd’s radio show, stating that he was upset about reports of Johnson being lured away by the Commanders.

Ben Johnson, if he leaves us, bro… Ben Johnson, if you leave us, this record is coming,” he said in the interview, which was posted on Sunday. “This song is coming.Just stay with us one more year. Our team is amazing right now. We can’t change anything. I don’t even want to change the hat I wore last week.

Eminem is one of the biggest fans of the Lions. He even made an appearance at the NFC Championship Game against 49ers. The Detroit-based rapper also engaged in a spirit verbal and gestural fight with the fans of the Bay as well.

The Lions had a historic season, winning their first division title in 30 years and securing their first playoff victory in 32 seasons.

Under Johnson’s guidance, Jared Goff excelled, throwing for 4,575 passing yards, the second-highest in the NFL.

Additionally, the team ranked fifth in rushing yards, with David Montgomery achieving his second 1,000-yard season and rookie Jahmyr Gibbs contributing 945 yards on the ground.
