Six months after he was fired as head coach of the Lions, Jim Schwartz is settling in as defensive coordinator of the Bills.
Schwartz told the Buffalo News that he’s sure he’s in the right place, and at age 48 he has a lot of coaching left in him.
“There was never a question of getting back on the horse, so to speak,” Schwartz said of joining the Bills. “It was just making sure that the opportunity was the right one. I am very confident that this is it.”
Schwartz believes the Bills have a lot of talent on defense and that he can mold that talent.
“I’ve got to prove myself all over again. That’s exciting. I think that’ll bring out the best in players and the best in coaches. This is a tremendous opportunity for a defensive coach. I think there are some real positives here that we can build on,” Schwartz said.
If Schwartz succeeds in Buffalo, he may get a second chance at being a head coach. Hopefully with better results than he had in Detroit.
