01.15.13 5 years ago 30 Comments

Bears: Bruce Arians is reportedly on the short list of coaches the Chicago Bears would like to take over as the head coach, along with Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman. Arians continues to be the bell of the ball after leading the Indianapolis Colts to the postseason and will also interview with the San Diego Chargers this week.

Cardinals: Mike McCoy is the head coach the Arizona Cardinals are targeting according to Ian Rapoport of, and if McCoy passes on the position, the team will promote defensive coordinator Ray Horton. That sound you hear is Boss Todd’s idling Camaro sitting in the garage with no place to go. (UPDATE: Boss Todd has opened the garage door.)

Chargers: Besides Bruce Arians, the San Diego Chargers have already interviewed former Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt, Bengals offensive Jay Gruden, Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Also rumored to be interested the Chargers head coaching position is Mr. T from the A-Team, who went an impressive 14-2 in returning kidnap victims this fall. 


Eagles: The Philadelphia Inquirer says the Eagles may finally be settling on its head coaching decision with a second interview with Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley scheduled for today, this after interviewing every available person under the sun including Brian Billick, M. Night Shyamalan and noted Temple football standout Bill Cosby. (Just kidding, there is no way anyone wants Billick.)

Or maybe not according Adam Schefter.

Jets: Not a coaching interview, but it is amusing that the Jets are struggling to fill their vacant GM position, going as far as to offer a $1 million housing allowance among other perks and supposedly calling candidates who previously turned down the job and asking them to reconsider. Steelers Director of Business & Football operations Omar Khan is set to meet with the Jets a second time this week.
