Another one bites the dust, Jim Schwartz


Recommended Posts

The Detroit Lions have fired head coach Jim Schwartz on Monday morning just hours after his 51st loss in five years, Kyle Meinke of Mlive reports. This according to ESPN. The move was widely expected after presided over a second consecutive collapse.

He was the sixth head coach to be served his papers, following Tampa Bay's Greg Schiano, Washington's Mike Shanahan and Minnesota's Leslie Frazier on Monday; Cleveland's Rob Chudzinski on Sunday; and Houston's Gary Kubiak during the season.

Schwartz finishes his tenure 29-51 overall, the worst record of any coach in his first five years since John McKay of the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He reportedly has two years and more than $12 million remaining on his contract, which Detroit must still pay. But the Lions became willing to shell out the big bucks after the Lions' once-promising devolved into an ugly and mistaken-riden 1-6 finish.
