Schwartz’s defense shined this year and finished first in the league in rushing yards allowed per game with 79.2. They also finished 17th in passing yards allowed per game with 227.3, which is actually a lot better than most expected heading into the season.
One thing’s for sure – the fact that the Eagles are 13-3 has a lot to do with the interest in their coordinators/coaches.
