Lions Hire Jim Schwartz as Head Coach

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in , , , ,

This happened a couple days ago, but....The Detroit Lions GM Martin Mayhew hired Tennessee Titans' Defensive Coordinator as their new Head Coach. Schwartz coached the Titans defense for eight years under Jeff Fisher and has great hair like George Clooney.

In addition, Schwartz was an Economics major from Georgetown and relies heavily on the numbers game of football. I'm assuming he will improve the Lions by actually putting eleven guys out on the field and making sure they have a higher number on the scoreboard than the other team at the end of games. Those are just a couple basic numbers-analysis type stuff Schwartz will bring to the table that hasn't existed for the Lions in many, many years. I'm very excited about that.

In all seriousness, I don't think the Lions could have gotten a better coach that was on the market, minus Shanahan, maybe. I'm assuming he was not a real option though. I don't think he had any interest in the Lions position and I don't blame him. He's older and I'm sure he wants a chance to win again before his fake tans catch up to his health.

Schwartz's next order of business will be to fill the rest of his staff while figuring out what style of football they want to have offensively and defensively. After that, they will turn the rest of their attention to the draft. Who do you think it will be? What do you think of the Schwartz hiring?
