Lions mum with candidates

If the Lions are down to a final two of Jim Schwartz and Steve Spagnuolo, they haven't told their other coaching candidates as much. Of course, that doesn't mean they're not, either.

If the Rams hire Schwartz and the Jets hire Spagnuolo, the Lions wouldn't want their third choice – or fans, for that matter – knowing he's No. 3 on the list. Still, at some point you'd expect the franchise to pass on word to its candidates it's going in another direction. That way they can pursue/focus on other job opportunities.

As of now, a league source tells me that isn't the case.

According to the ESPN report, Schwartz will meet tomorrow with owner William Clay Ford. This is his second interview. It's possible the Lions make him an offer tomorrow, but I'd expect them to stay diligent and have a few candidates in for second interviews.

thanks for answering, dave. i agree and i also think they should go through a second round, but i'd like to see a coach in place by the end of the week at the very latest.
