The Lions and millionai wner William Clay Ford sigm Jilmer Thursday to a reporte contract al ecret meeting at club head-! quarters. Gilmer, lured away from the Minnesota Vikings where he was a top aide to coach Norm Van Brocklin for four years, succeeds the resigned coachj Jeorge Wilson, victim, of Ihe .ions' coaching upheaval last month. 'BAMA GREAT The 38-year-old Alabaman, star of the great Crimson Tide teams of the middle and late 1940s and who set records ga- lore for his era, was grabbed up by the Lions less than three weeks after Wilson's resignation following the firing of all his five assistant coaches. Ford, of whom fans here were critical for his handling of the pre-Christmas coach removals, said he was happy to get Gil- mer. The Lions reportedly received the approval of the Vikings be- fore they made their tender to Gilmer. The clubs were said to have talked together beforehand and the Vikings gave the Lions a go-ahead in their effort. On one score surely the Lions have added to club luster.
