Schwartz back in the picture?

A friend of a relative has an old college buddy who knows a guy who knows Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and he says that Schwartz is coming into town this weekend for another round of interviews.

Actually, the source of this information isn’t quite that convoluted, but it’s just as much hearsay.

I’m only passing it along because it would be a logical next step for Dan Snyder and the Redskins to take along the long and winding road that the coaching search has become. Of course “logic” and “Snyder” and “coaching search” don’t necessarily belong in the same sentence, so there is that caveat as well.

Schwartz, as you may recall, was described as the frontrunner in an NBCSports.com article shortly after the process started. According to that article, he blew away Snyder in the interview, which lasted all day.

If after failing to secure a coach of the “retread who created a firestorm” variety, Snyder turns his attention to the “young assistant who could be around for a long time so that I don’t have to go through this coaching search thing again anytime soon” it would seem that Schwartz is a good candidate.

Again, this is just a rumor, but one worth keeping an eye on.
