Default Lions Hire Jim Schwartz

Lions hire Titans' Schwartz
By Larry Lage
The Associated Press


DETROIT The Detroit Lions on Thursday agreed on a four-year contract with Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz to be their coach.

Schwartz, 42, will attempt to lead a turnaround for the NFL's first 0-16 team. The Lions fired Rod Marinelli two weeks ago and interviewed several candidates, including Dolphins assistant head coach Todd Bowles.

Schwartz just finished his eighth season as the Titans defensive coordinator and his 10th on their staff. He interviewed for a second time with the Lions on Monday.

Does No one want Spagnuolo?

The Lions clearly don't read the Orangemane enough or Spags would have been their clear choice.

Spagnuolo's 0-3 so far. You still want him? The rest of the NFL apparently doesn't. Must be something about the guy.

Besides, I saw on the NFL ticker this morning that Pioli might not fire herm.

I wouldn't mind him, but apparently he and Pioli don't get along well.

Who does that leave?

Anyone?

Anyone at all?

Hm?

You're an idiot if you think Mike Shanahan is going to even consider coaching this year, nonetheless for the hopeless Chiefs. Dude wants complete power.

I heard Schottenheimer is available if you want him back.

But Shanahan said he only wants to play for a team that has a chance to win a championship in the near future. So, that leaves you guys out.

Schwartz won't be happy when he crunches his number formulas up there.

Did you guys miss the report that linked Shanahan to the Chiefs?

The report that was posted on this very board?

The report that said he would not require total power?

To the NFL graveyard Schwartz goes...


I would gladly take Spags in a heartbeat. His work has been very noticeable and he is a great motivator who can actually run a team well. Not sure why he is doing so poorly in interviews

The Schwartz hire means Rivera stays in SD. Sweet.

The Chiefs stuck with Herm?

Quote:
Reports are everywhere Thursday that the Detroit Lions have hired Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz as their new head coach, which is bad news for Ron Rivera but good news for the Chargers.

Rivera, who improved San Diego's defense after taking over as coordinator halfway through the 2008 season, interviewed this week for the Lions job. But he doesn't have any other head coaching interviews lined up, so it appears he'll remain with the Chargers, who have him under contract through the 2010 season.

How can anyone link Shanahan to the Chiefs when no one has heard from him in 2 weeks? Not going to happen, Jiggles.
