The City of Sherrill is proudly displaying their support of native Matt Patricia after he landed his first head coaching job in the NFL.

Patricia was recently named Head Coach of the Detroit Lions and the entire City of Sherrill is celebrating.

The city shared photos on their Facebook page of the recently unveiled new 'Welcome to Sherrill' signs that sport Patricia's face and the words "Home of NFL coach MATT PATRICIA 3 time Super Bowl champion."

They also had some warm words for the VVS graduate:

There are only 32 Cities, Towns or Villages in the world that can lay claim to being the hometown of their Head Football Coach. Today, Sherrill, NY is honored to be one of them.

You can see the sign on W. Hamilton Ave. as you enter the City from NYS Rt. 5.

Patricia is the former Defensive Coordinator for the New England Patriots - whom he helped to 3 Super Bowl wins during his tenure.

Congrats to Matt Patricia and the City of Sherrill, now it looks like the entire City has become supporters of the Detroit Lions for the next few years at least.

We'll be watching on Sundays.
