Buffalo coach Doug Marrone said he thinks Jim Schwartz is a great fit as defensive coordinator for the Bills organization.
“I knew how he worked, I knew how he prepared, I knew it was difficult schematically to go against,’’ Marrone said at the NFL Combine this morning (Thursday.)
“I thought he was a great fit and it was a great move for our organization,’’ Marrone said.
He said Schwartz’s experience as a head coach is obviously beneficial.
“i always tell people when i was an assistant coach and I’d look and always say what’s the head coach doing, where is he, what’s going on,’’ Marrone said. “Then when you become head coach it’s like, ‘Holy cow i can’t believe i ever questioned that.’’’
Schwartz was fired by the Lions on Dec. 30 after five seasons.
