BREAKING: Jim Schwartz fired as head coach of Detroit Lions

ALLEN PARK, MI (WKZO) -- Following consecutive mid season collapses, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Detroit Lions have  parted ways with head coach Jim Schwartz.

 

Schwartz’s tenure in Detroit has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. Just three years removed from the winless season, Schwartz led the Lions to a 10 win season and their first playoff berth since 1999. The team took a major step back in 2012 finishing 4-12.

 

The 2013 campaign began with endless promise, and a 6-3 start. The Lions were primed to take control of the NFC North with a pair of wins over the Chicago Bears. Detroit dropped six of their final seven games including a 14-13 loss in the season finale Sunday in Minnesota.

 

After going 7-9 in 2013, Schwartz finishes his career with the Lions at 29-51 with one playoff appearance and one playoff loss in five seasons.
