Jim Schwartz has landed another job in the NFL, but it won't be as a coach.
Schwartz will serve as a consultant to the league's officiating department for the 2015 season, a league official confirmed with NFL Media on Monday. Fox Sports reported the news first and according to a source, Schwartz will provide a coach's perspective with some of the decisions made by the officiating office.
Schwartz drew consideration for several defensive coordinator positions, but did not find a new job. The job with the league should serve as something of a pit stop for the coach, who should be back in the mix for coordinator and head-coach openings next offseason.
In the meantime, he'll collect a pay check, re-charge his battery and get involved with the game from a different perspective. There are worse fates.
