Never heard of the guy before this season. From ESPN-
The Detroit Lions agreed on a four-year deal Thursday with Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz to be their coach.
Schwartz 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 will be introduced at a news conference Friday at Ford Field, the home of the Lions.
The 42-year-old 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.
Detroit needs a miracle worker to get the franchise turned around. Schwartz has a thankless job ahead of him and I wish him good luck. He’s going to need it.
