Detroit appears to be focusing on defense, and ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz will meet with Lions owner William Clay Ford Monday.

While the Titans were off during the Wild Card round of the playoffs, Schwartz interviewed for the job that opened when Rod Marinelli was let go after the first 0-16 season in NFL history.

But he did not meet with Ford then and, after the Titans bowed out of the postseason with a Saturday loss to Baltimore, is now available to talk more.

It's unclear if Schwartz is in the mix for any other open jobs.

If he leaves the Titans, Jeff Fisher is expected to pick his replacement from a list of three: Titans linebacker coach Dave McGinnis, Titans secondary coach Chuck Cecil and former Titans coordinator Gregg Williams.
