New Lions coach upbeat

1:51 pm on 17 January 2009

The New Detroit Lions head coach has urged fans not to expect overnight miracles, but promised he's ready for the challenge of turning around one of the NFL's all-time worst teams.

Jim Schwartz has moved from the league's best team last season, the Tennessee Titans, to one that became the first to finish the regular season 0-16.

He says he's not afraid of the task in hand.

Schwartz says there's no better feeling in the world than turning a situation around and success will be so much sweeter.
