Eagles continue interviews with Whisenhunt

The SportsXchange

The Philadelphia Eagles' coaching search rolls on.

Former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt interviewed Monday morning for the head-coaching vacancy that was created when Andy Reid was fired Dec. 31. Later in the day, the Eagles were to meet with Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.

During the two-week search, the Eagles are known to have had at least 11 candidates for the position, including Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly, Oregon coach Chip Kelly, Penn State coach Bill O'Brien, former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick and former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith.

The Eagles are also expected to interview Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians.

Whisenhunt was fired on the same day as Reid after the Cardinals finished the 2012 season with a 5-11 record. He was head coach in Arizona for six years and took the Cardinals to a Super Bowl.

It's not the first interview for Whisenhunt since he was ousted. He has spoken with the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns and San Diego Chargers about their head-coaching openings.
