The Cleveland Browns have officially hired Jim Schwartz to become their next defensive coordinator following the dismissal of Joe Woods, who was fired last week, according to ESPN’s Jake Trotter.

The Browns finished the 2022 season with a 7-10 record, missing the playoffs for the second consecutive season, and ranked 19th in defensive efficiency.

Schwartz, 56, was the head coach of the Detroit Lions from 2009 to 2013, posting a 2951 record during the stretch, including a playoff run in 2011. Schwartz was defensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles when they won the Super Bowl back in 2018.

Schwartz has been a defensive assistant with the Tennessee Titans for the last two seasons, and has been a defensive coordinator in the past for the Titans, and the Buffalo Bills.
