Jim Schwartz to join Doug Pederson's staff as Eagles' DC

— -- Jim Schwartz has agreed to be defensive coordinator on coach Doug Pederson's staff with the Philadelphia Eagles, a league source told ESPN's Adam Caplan, confirming multiple reports.

Pederson will be introduced as the Eagles' head coach, replacing the fired Chip Kelly, on Tuesday.

Besides the Eagles, Schwartz also had interest from the Cleveland Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars for their defensive coordinator positions.

Schwartz, who lives in Nashville, would have liked to join the Titans, a source told ESPN's Paul Kuharsky, but Dick LeBeau is in line to return to head coach Mike Mularkey's staff.

Schwartz was Tennessee's defensive coordinator from 2001-08 after two seasons as a defensive assistant with the Titans.

The Browns also have received permission from the Titans to interview defensive coordinator Ray Horton for the same position in Cleveland, a source told Kuharsky, confirming an earlier report by NFL Network, which first reported the news.

Schwartz has already interviewed with the Jaguars, sources tell ESPN's Mike DiRocco, confirming multiple reports.

He was the third candidate to have interviewed with Jaguars coach Gus Bradley. Atlanta Falcons secondary coach Marquand Manuel and Miami Dolphins interim defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo also interviewed over the past two weeks.

Schwartz spent the 2015 season as an officiating consultant with the NFL but was Buffalo's defensive coordinator in 2014 under Doug Marrone, who is now the Jaguars' offensive line coach/assistant head coach for offense. The Bills led the NFL in sacks and finished fourth in the NFL in total defense and scoring defense.

He went 29-51 in five seasons (2009-13) as the Detroit Lions' head coach. The Lions had one winning season and made the playoffs once in his tenure.
