The Detroit Lions have fired head coach Jim Schwartz, but it does not appear that they are going to fire general manager Martin Mayhew as well. According to Jay Glazer, Mayhew is staying on as general manager of the Lions, which makes sense when you consider that a press conference has been called for 2 p.m. ET with Mayhew and Lions president Tom Lewand, who is also reportedly safe.

Throughout the past few weeks, as rumors swirled about Schwartz's future, there was never really much talk about Mayhew's status. This was an indication that a change in the front office was unlikely, although everything was really up in the air as of Monday morning. It wasn't clear if Schwartz would actually be fired, just as it wasn't clear if Mayhew would be retained.
