The Eagles have the NFL’s fourth ranked defense in terms of yards allowed this season. It’s visible to anyone that has watched a Schwartz’s coached defense that he can light a fire under his players. In his five seasons as head coach of the Detroit Lions, Schwartz amassed a 29-51 record but also snapped an 11-year postseason drought during his tenure. The Eagles defensive coordinator is sure to draw multiple head coaching interviews this offseason.
