Report: Jim Schwartz owed $12 million over next two years

Jim Schwartz's future in Detroit is still to be determined, but it seems we know how much it will cost if the Lions cut ties with the head coach.

Schwartz is owed $12 million over the next two seasons, according to report from ESPN's Adam Schefter. He received a contract extension before the 2012 season, after leading the Lions to the playoffs.

Doing the math, the report suggests Schwartz is paid an annual salary of approximately $6 million.

Entering Sunday's game, Schwartz has compiled a 29-49 record over five seasons.
