Schwartz & Henderson combo solid for ‘D’

Posted by Chris Brown on February 21, 2014 – 12:41 pm

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was the defensive coordinator in Baltimore and had Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz as a defensive assistant and Bills secondary coach Donnie Henderson as his secondary coach as well. He believes the combination of the two on Buffalo’s defense will do a lot to raise their overall performance to an even greater level than where it was in 2013.

“Schwartzy is a tremendous mind with ideas and energy and obviously I think the world of him,” said Lewis. “He’s done a great job as a coordinator and a head coach and now he’s taking a step back to be a coordinator again.

“Donnie is a guy who I owe a lot to. He’s a tremendous secondary coach who does a great job with the players. He’ll be a great extension and great resource for Jimmy on how to attack and how to defend. And that’s what you want. When you’re in that coordinator’s chair you want a guy that can come in and help you with the plan and if you ask him a question he’s going to give you a creditable answer that you can rely on.”

Henderson has also been a defensive coordinator in the NFL, as well as Bills LBs coach Fred Pagac.
