Conflicting reports out there on Jim Schwartz job status

DETROIT — Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz led the Lions to a disappointing 4-11 season with one more chance at a fifth win today against the Chicago Bears. 

In his four seasons with the Lions, Schwartz is 22-41 after taking over an 0-16 team. He’s had one winning season when they finished 10-6 in 2011.

 Today there are conflicting reports on his job status for next season.

 ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported on Sunday that the Ford family has discussed buying out Schwartz’s contract and moving on. Reportedly they are unhappy with the culture of the team.

Jason LaCanfora, the insider for, reports that Schwartz is safe as does

Schwartz signed a contract extension before the season through 2015.

 A week ago, Adam Schefter reported that Schwartz is safe.

 The Ford family has a long history of loyalty to general managers and coaches. It’d be surprising to see them give up on schwartz or general manager Martin Mayhew. 
Expect they will both get another season to turn situation around.

Very Well! I just stared. Congratulations on being awesome. Get the most updated weather conditions and forecasts for Minden cottage, Canada. Check out this home situated on a lovely 3.4 acre lot. Set back from the road it is quiet living at its best. For those restful evenings, check out the screened room. A partially finished lower level offers a bright, comfy rec room with walkout, and extra bedroom, storage and laundry. The large, 2 bay detached garage offers loads of space for all your extras. 10 minutes from Minden and 4 minutes from the public beach on Horseshoe Lake – a great location!
