Buffalo Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan today announced that the team has terminated the contract of Jim Schwartz which will allow the defense coordinator to pursue other opportunities.
Ryan said, “I have the utmost respect for Jim and what he has been able to accomplish throughout his career and I know he feels the same about me. Jim’s defenses are always tough and ranked near the top of the league standings. I wanted to give Jim the opportunity to pursue other opportunities and so we have terminated his contract. He did a terrific job with the Bills defense this past year and our plan is for our defense to continue to play well and be a dominating force.”
Schwartz did a great job with the Bills defense this season. The unit was 4th in both total points allowed and total yardage allowed. He'll be a hot name on the DC market.
