Jim Schwartz's contract extension with Lions runs through 2015, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz's contract runs through 2015, according to a report.

When the Detroit Lions finally agreed to a contract extension with head coach Jim Schwartz last summer, very few details were available on the terms of it. The Lions and Schwartz both intentionally kept things quiet, leading to much speculation about the length of the extension. The only thing the public was told was that the extension was for multiple years.

With Schwartz about to complete his original four-year deal and the Lions struggling mightily, there has been a lot of talk about his job status going forward. The big unknown amid all of this talk was just how long he is under contract with the Lions. On Saturday night, ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the news that Schwartz's extension runs through 2015.

If this is indeed the case, Schwartz is under contract for the next three seasons, as noted by Schefter. As Schefter indicated, this likely means that Schwartz isn't going anywhere after this season. Aside from the fact that he took the Lions to the playoffs last season, teams don't typically make changes after giving out three-year extensions.
