ALLEN PARK, MI (AP) -

Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell says he's still working because he's under contract.

Caldwell says he was conducting business as usual Monday, a day after the Lions won at Chicago to finish his second season in Detroit at 7-9.

Caldwell says Detroit defensive coordinator Teryl Austin is scheduled to interview with the Cleveland Browns this week.

Over two seasons, Caldwell has led the Lions to an 18-14 record and one playoff appearance.

According to STATS, the previous NFL coach to lose his job with a winning record in the regular season over two years with at least one postseason appearance was Chan Gailey, who was fired by the Dallas Cowboys after the 1999 season.
