Jim Schwartz's contract terminated by Bills
Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's contract has been terminated.
Schwartz is now free to pursue other jobs.
New Jets coach Rex Ryan is hiring Dennis Thurman as defensive coordinator.
"I have the utmost respect for Jim and what he has been able to accomplish throughout his career and I know he feels the same about me," Ryan said. "Jim’s defenses are always tough and ranked near the top of the league standings. I wanted to give Jim the opportunity to pursue other opportunities and so we have terminated his contract. He did a terrific job with the Bills defense this past year and our plan is for our defense to continue to play well and be a dominating force. ”
