Browns hiring Titans’ Jim Schwartz as next defensive coordinator

Tennessee Titans senior defensive assistant Jim Schwartz is leaving the team after two seasons to take the defensive coordinator job with the Cleveland Browns.

According to multiple reports, the Browns are hiring Schwartz as their next defensive coordinator. This will be the fourth time Schwartz holds such a position. He was also previously head coach of the Detroit Lions.

Schwartz was hired by the Titans in 2021, and since then their defense has greatly improved, even with the unit being riddled by injuries.

The Titans’ defense ranked No. 2 against the run and tied for fifth in scoring in 2021. The unit took a bit of a step back in 2022 overall, mostly thanks to injuries, but still sported the top run defense in the league.
