Looks like Pat Bolan already has his man picked out to be his next head coach, Jim Schwartz. The Titans defensive coordinator is rumored to be the coach the Denver Broncos are after. We just got this information from a very trustworthy source that used to be a high-level employee with the Broncos organization. If this is true, then I think the Broncos have made a very wise decision. Schwartz seems to be a coach on the rise and has enough experience (eight years as a coordinator) in the NFL to become a very good head coach. The Broncos struggles on defense is what ultimately cost this team the AFC West crown. Bringing in one of the top defensive coordinators in the business should help them turn things around. Unfortunately, that doesn’t help the Chiefs out at all.
The Broncos will have to wait until the Titans are finished with the playoffs before they can officially hire him. They can go ahead interview him, which the Lions are doing so as well. Here is a little more on Schwartz from the Titans Official Site:
Jim Schwartz is in his 10th season with the Titans and eighth as defensive coordinator.
During his tenure as defensive coordinator, two statistics have been at the heart of the team’s success – third-down defense and rushing defense. Over the last seven seasons, the Titans rank sixth in the league in third-down defense (36.3% conversion rate) and eighth in the league in rushing defense (105 yards per game). Currently, the Titans defense has allowed only eight 100-yard rushers in the last 56 home games.
What do you think about”The Schwartz”?
