Jim Schwartz denies there’s tension between him and Martin Mayhew

Don Banks of SI.com reported that there’s some tension within the Detroit Lions’ locker room between head coach Jim Schwartz and general manager Martin Mayhew.

Schwartz addressed the report on Friday.

“It couldn’t be further from the truth,” Schwartz said, per the Detroit News. “I don’t like to comment on rumors, particularly from people not in our building that don’t see us every day, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

“We are all in this together and we are all very determined to get us back on the right track.”

“This whole ‘there is a report that this, how do you respond to it,’ it’s just become a whole thing where we’re responding to an anonymous source or a report that somebody said this or that,” he said. “It’s counter-productive to what we’re trying to do. Though I will say, it couldn’t be further from the truth.”
