The team announced the hiring Thursday. Schwartz will attempt to lead a turnaround for the NFL's first 0-16 team. The Lions fired Rod Marinelli two weeks ago and interviewed several candidates, including Dolphins assistant head coach Todd Bowles.
The 42-year-old Schwartz just finished his eighth season as the Titans defensive coordinator and his 10th on their staff. He interviewed for a second time with the Lions on Monday.
ESPN first reported the hiring.
