Bills hire Jim Schwartz as DC

Buffalo Bills - [Full Article]

Jim Schwartz has agreed to terms to become the Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator.

Schwartz, 47, will enter his 21st year in the NFL coaching ranks and ninth as a defensive coordinator. He served in the same capacity with the Tennessee Titans from 2001-08 overseeing a defense that finished in the top 10 in both rushing yards allowed per game (5th-103.5) and third down conversion rate (6th-36.1%) during his tenure.

Fantasy Impact: 

While the Lions never had an elite defense under Schwartz, he did break a streak of three consecutive last place finishes by the franchise in most points allowed during his second season, and the team improved to 15th in points allowed in his fifth season as head coach. Schwartz replaces Mike Pettine, who left to become the head coach of the Browns.
