Former Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz will be interviewing with another team for the same position.

Schwartz is currently with the Titans as a senior defensive assistant but will be interviewing for the Colts DC position, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Schwartz was with the Eagles until January of 2021 when he left the organization and contemplated retirement.

The Eagles defense finished 20th overall for that season and gave up an average of 26.5 points per game.

He was in charge of Philadelphia's defense when it won the Super Bowl in 2018 over New England. His unit forced a Tom Brady fumble late in that contest to help clinch the Eagles' first Super Bowl in franchise history.

Before that, he was the head coach for the Detroit Lions from 2009-13 and finished with a 29-51 record. He led the Lions to the playoffs in 2011 but lost in the wild card round.

The Colts DC opening is due to Matt Eberflus taking the Chicago Bears head coaching gig. Schwartz would be quite the replacement if he's able to land the job.
