Jim Schwartz’s wife Kathy Schwartz is originally from Baltimore, MD. And while home is always where the heart is, coaches and their families are forced to have a different credo. Home is where the job is. Jim is also from the Baltimore area. But, just since 2013, the family has bounced around. Detroit in 2013. Buffalo in 2014. Working for the league office in 2015. Philadelphia in 2016. And now, he’s a popular candidate to take over for one of the head coaching jobs in the league. Bet they have UHaul on speed dial.
Jim Schwartz’s Wife & Kids
So besides moving across the country, what else is the family up to. Well, clearly kids are on the agenda. The Schwatz’s have three kids. Their sons, Christian and Allison were born in 2001, and their daughter Maria was born in 2003. While we don’t have definitive proof on the matter, we’d certainly expect that the kids grew up,… you know….. with their parents. The life of a coaches kid has to be like a military brat. You imagine they get really good at making friends quickly. It’s certainly a life skill that applies outside of elementary school. But, you do wonder about the challenges of that from the perspective of just being a kid.
Jim Schwartz’s Wife Kathy Schwartz; The Charitable Sort
Back when Jim was coaching the Lions, the Schwartz family invested back in their community. Kathy Schwartz, along with other Detroit Lions’ wives, makes regular appearances at the Detroit Lions Academy. Detroit Lions Academy is an alternative middle school in the Detroit public school system. The school mentors early teens girls to help foster self-esteem.
There’s not much else about Kathy out there. Having teenage kids, and a long term lease on a moving van, there probably aren’t many hours in the day to do anything else. Typically coordinators and their wives take a little less pub than head coaches and players. If Jim takes a head coaching job out there, maybe Kathy goes back to the spotlight a bit more.
The Eagles take on the Patriots in the Super Bowl soon. If the confetti rains down in green and white, we may get another shot of Jim Schwartz’s wife. No one in Philadelphia would mind that at all!
