Allen Park, MI (Sports Network) - The Detroit Lions have reportedly given
head coach Jim Schwartz a contract extension.

The Lions finished 2-14 in the first year under Schwartz. The following year
they went 6-10 and last year brought a 10-6 mark, when the team earned its
first trip to the playoffs since 1999. Detroit lost to New Orleans in the wild
