(WXYZ) - The Lions had their fair share of off-field issues under former head coach Jim Schwartz.
Stephen Tulloch says Jim Caldwell has changed the culture right off the get-go, treating players "like men."
The Lions linebacker visited the 7 Sports Cave on Tuesday, filming an interview for Sunday's new episode.
"He takes our input and treats us like men," Tulloch said of Caldwell.
When asked if that was different than before, the nine-year veteran said it was.
"It's unique. It started when Coach Caldwell got here, taking each (position) group out to dinner and just talking to the players."
Tulloch said the new head coach has been seeking constant feedback from players, something that's been a welcomed change in the locker room.
"Much respect to Schwartz," he said. "But I think the change is at the right time."
Tulloch is holding his annual softball game on Saturday, June 7. He also spent time talking about his new venture to help raise money for Detroit schools.
The interview will air on the 7 Sports Cave, this Sunday at 11 a.m. on WXYZ Channel 7.
