Seattle Seahawks Defensive Coordinator Gus Bradley might be the hottest name on the NFL heaf-coaching market rightnmow, and apparently he’s wasted little time in doing such, as there are reports coming out that he’s close to becoming the new coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, though these reports have been shot down already.
While it’s just a rumor at this point and nothing is set in stone yet, it would be safe to say he is the favorite to be the Eagles next HC after he interviewed with them on Saturday, and impressed the Eagles enough that they are in the process of setting up a second interview.
This makes even likelier that Bengals Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden remains in Cincinnati after he reportedly interviewed with the Eagles today. He also interviewed with the Arizona Cardinals, but they are favoring Broncos Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy right now.
The biggest threat to steal Jay Gruden away appears to be the Jacksonville Jaguars after this report came out Sunday via the National Football Post:
Jay Gruden could emerge for the Chargers head coaching job. Why is that? New general manager Tom Telesco is said to hold Gruden in high regard. Telesco got to know about Gruden last year when Gruden was a candidate for the Colts head coaching job. The Colts, remember, offered Gruden the job that went to Chuck Pagano, and Gruden said no thanks.
Jay also spent Sunday meeting with the San Diego Chargers.
