FORD, JR. BEING "GROOMED" TO LEAD LIONS FUTURE
Published December 1, 1994
William Clay Ford, Jr. is slowly gaining control over the Lions operation from his father, William Clay Ford, Sr. "There is no timetable on when the younger Ford, 37, will take control of the franchise" that his father has run since 1964, as the transfer of leadership will "come only when father and son decide the time is right." Ford, Jr. will represent the team next week in Denver at a meeting of NFL owners (Mike O'Hara, DETROIT NEWS, 11/30).
