DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Lions have agreed to a four-year deal with Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz to be their coach.
The Lions fired Rod Marinelli two weeks ago after posting the NFL's first 0-16 season.
The 42-year-old Schwartz just finished his eighth season as the Titans defensive coordinator and his 10th on Tennessee's staff. He interviewed for a second time with the Lions Monday.
