Former Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is the new defensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills.

Schwartz was fired last month after five seasons as head coach of the Detroit Lions.

The Titans' defense three times finished among the NFL's top 10 in fewest yards allowed under Schwartz's watch. Tennessee was particularly stingy in stopping the run, finishing sixth or better in yards rushing allowed.

“We are excited to add a talented and accomplished coordinator in Jim Schwartz to our staff,” Bills coach Doug Marrone said in a statement. “Schwartz has led aggressive and productive defensive units throughout his time in the NFL, and we feel our defense will continue to improve under his leadership.”
