Lions fire Schwartz

The Lions have fired head coach Jim Schwartz after a disappointing 7-9 season. In five seasons with the Lions, Schwartz compiled a 29-51 record and led Detroit to only one playoff berth. Despite the team's underachievement, the Lions may be the most appealing coaching destinations this offseason, thanks in large part to Calvin Johnson, a strong defensive front and the presence of a talented, though very inconsistent, Matthew Stafford.
