NFL Won't Discipline Jim Harbaugh, Jim Schwartz For Post-Game Altercation

Although it didn't seem likely that Jim Schwartz and Jim Harbaugh would receive any punishment for their altercation after Sunday's Lions-49ers game, the possibility of a fine could not be ruled out. It was made clear Sunday night that the NFL was going to review the incident and determine if any punishment was necessary, and it wasn't clear what the league's next course of action would be.

On Monday, the NFL spoke to the two coaches, and after getting everybody's side of the story, the league did in fact determine no punishment was necessary. NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello explained why on Twitter.

On Detroit-SF coach incident, fortunately, there was no fighting and thus no basis for a fine. However, both coaches told Ray Anderson today that their post-game conduct was wrong and will not happen again. We believe their response is the correct one and that their post-game conduct going forward will be more appropriate.

I think a fine would have been a bit much, but then again, this is the NFL we're talking about. The league fines people for wearing the wrong colored socks, so nothing would have surprised me. I'm just glad the folks at the NFL decided to let this situation be and move on.
