The Detroit Lions' late-season collapse may have cost the head coach his job, but the general manager is reportedly staying put.
Schwartz was let go Monday in the wake of a four-game losing streak that kept the talented but underachieving Lions out of the postseason. Detroit was 6-3 at one point this season and was still in prime position to make the playoffs as late as Week 13 when they held a 7-5 record. They would not win another game after, finishing 7-9 and spoiling a prime opportunity to capture the NFC North in a down year for the conference. The Packers sealed the division crown on Sunday with an 8-7-1 record.
Mayhew just finished his 13th season with the Lions organization and his fifth year as the general manager.
