Lions Coach Jim Schwartz Declines To Talk About His Job Security
Lions coach Jim Schwartz talked about several things after his team's 26-24 loss against the Chicago Bears in the regular season finale.
His future with the team was one topic he avoided.
There have been conflicting reports today about Schwartz's job security after this season. Schwartz's team finished 4-12 and on an eight-game losing streak to close out the year.
The downward spiral has prompted rumors about Schwartz's job security, but the coach would not discuss his future after the game.
"I wouldn't discuss any private conversations for whatever purpose they served, and I've always been that way," Schwartz said. "The thing I'm most concerned about is getting this team back to where we all want it to be. When the story of this season is written, it's going to say 4-12, and nobody is happy with that. Players, coaches, front office, ownership. Everybody is in the same boat with that. But we're all focused on getting that right. There's nobody happy with that.
"Whether you're a player or you're a coach in this league, it just comes with the territory, particularly when you have a season like we did. I'll say this, I'm not proud at all of our record. There's things we can do better, but I am proud of this team, I'm proud of the way they fought. Everybody knows our situation and some of the challenges we had, particularly late in the season, but we got 17 points down, and we battled back. Defense started getting some stops. We were minus-4 in turnovers again. We end up losing by two points. I'm proud of the fight in this team, and I'm not proud of our record. We're very determined to get it right."
