Per Redskins Insider:
Schwartz is a Baltimore native who recently interviewed for the Ravens job as well. Several NFL sources said that they took the identification of Schwartz as a candidate as another sign that Williams, who the players strongly support, does not appear to be the front runner. Williams actually helped break in Schwartz as a young coach on Jeff Fisher's staff.
I don't mind Jim Schwartz. His Wikipedia entry says -- and I'm not claiming this as fact, merely as what his wikipedia entry says:
This reason this news troubles me is that I really wouldn't mind an inside hire. While Jim is in the same coaching tree as Gregg Williams, I'd just as soon take the proven guy we know can work with our players than the hot d-coordinator who has struggled as recently as '06 (admittedly, just as Gregg Williams struggled and I am and was unfamiliar with the Titans personnel at the time) and who would at least need to familiarize himself with this team. The players like Gregg Williams. And although Gregg Williams struggled in his first head coaching stint, at least he has experience with that much responsibility.
It is way too early to start categorically denying any head coaching candidate, especially since there isn't any official word that Jim has been interviewed or even contacted by the team. But we have ample time to speculate and reader(s) are encouraged to investigate all alleged head coaching candidates and find out what works and what doesn't. My initial reaction to Jim is meh, since I was growing more comfortable with Head Coach Gregg Williams every day.
What about this guy? Who didn't love Slingblade?
