The Detroit Lions are putting their faith in head coach Jim Schwartz, agreeing on a new multi-year deal, according to a league source and detroitlions.com. No financial terms or the length of the contract were disclosed.
“The next time I comment on my contract will be the first time,” Schwartz has said a number of times.
Schwartz, 46, will be entering his fourth season with the Lions taking over a team that went 0-16 the year before he got the job. The Lions went 2-14 his first year, then 6-10 and 10-6 last season, losing to the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card Round. It was the Lions' first playoff berth in 11 seasons.
