Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports that the Jaguars have interviewed former Lions HC Jim Schwartz for their defensive coordinator vacancy.

Jason La Canfora reported earlier in the day that the Jaguars have been trying to lure Schwartz to Jacksonville to run their defense. However, La Canfora mentioned that he wasn’t sure Schwartz would be willing to take that job, or any other position that wouldn’t be a perfect situation for him.

Although, it seems like a clear indication of his interest if he has already met with the Jaguars.

Schwartz has come up as a potential option for the Eagles and Titans in recent weeks.

The Jaguars fired defensive coordinator Bob Babich close to a week ago after three seasons in Jacksonville.

Schwartz, 49, was by as the Lions back in 2009. During his five years in Detroit, Schwartz led them to a record of 29-51 (36.3 percent) including one playoff appearance.

After being fired for after the 2013 season, Schwartz caught on with the Bills as their defensive coordinator, and had a good amount of success running their defensive before Buffalo brought in a defensive staff.
