Don Banks of Sports Illustrated reports that the Eagles are interested in former Lions HC Jim Schwartz regarding their defensive coordinator vacancy.
Banks also mentions that it is unclear whether the interest stems from new Eagles HC Doug Pederson or from Philadelphia’s front office.
The Eagles are fresh off their Thursday announcement that Pederson will be the team’s next head coach and now require a staff of coordinators and assistants to be put together.
Schwartz, 49, was the head coach in Detroit from 2009-2013. He was then was hired as the Bills’ defensive coordinator for the next two seasons, but was unfortunately terminated in January of last year.
This offseason, Schwartz has drawn interest from the Dolphins and has come up as a speculative option for the Titans and Browns.
