The Tennessee Titans added Jim Schwartz as a senior defensive assistant, the team announced Wednesday.
Schwartz, who spent 10 seasons with the Titans (1999-2008), still lives in the Nashville area. The 54-year-old worked the past five seasons as the defensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles before announcing his intention to retire in January.
Schwartz will be a resource for Shane Bowen, who was promoted to defensive coordinator earlier this offseason.
Bowen unofficially led the defense in the 2020 season as outside linebackers coach. He called the plays in 2020, and the Titans were seventh in the NFL in takeaways with 23 and also seventh in interceptions with 15.
