Former Lions head coach and Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz was first connected to the Eagles yesterday. Then he was seen in town. And now, he’s ready to be the Eagles’ defensive coordinator. At least they’re doing this part quickly.
Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks says a deal with Schwartz is not yet signed, but it’s in place:
Eagles have a new Defensive coordinator in Jim Schwartz. Deal is not yet signed, but agreement in place.

And just now, Doug Pederson announced Jim Schwartz as the new DC in his press conference. May the Schwartz be with us.
Though Frank Reich has been connected to the offensive coordinator job, Pederson said they’re still going through that process.
