Seahawks OC Bevell up for three head-coaching jobs

The SportsXchange

Darrell Bevell is a man in demand.

He's reportedly one of three finalists for the Chicago Bears' head-coaching job, and the Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars both want to speak with him about their head-coaching vacancies.

Bevell, the Seattle Seahawks' offensive coordinator, is making the rounds after his team lost to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday in the NFC divisional playoffs.

The Chicago Tribune reported that Bevell, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman are the finalists for the Bears' job. Bevell was due to have a second interview in Chicago on Tuesday, according to ESPN.com.

The Jaguars requested and received permission to speak with Bevell, ESPN.com reported, and NFL.com reported that the Arizona Cardinals intend to talk with him, too.

St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer was scheduled to talk with Jacksonville officials Tuesday, and Jaguars defensive coordinator Mel Tucker interviewed for the top job Monday.

Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley has an interview scheduled with the Jaguars on Wednesday, according to ESPN.com, but Bradley got a second interview Tuesday with the Philadelphia Eagles.

NFL.com reported that the Eagles were still weighing their options, though Bradley appeared to be the front-runner among a pool that is believed to include at least 11 candidates.

Bevell became a hot commodity after helping turn rookie quarterback Russell Wilson into a quality performer this season. Seattle's offense ranked 17th in the regular season, third in rushing and 27th in passing.
