The Eagles fired head coach Andy Reid on Black Monday after a 4-12 season and are now pursuing options to fill the vacancy. The team has been granted permission to interview Seattle DC Gus Bradley and Colts OC Bruce Arians.

Arians spent much of the season as interim head coach while coach Chuck Pagano underwent chemotherapy treatment, so it makes sense for teams to consider Arians a viable candidate for the head coaching job. The interview is expected to take place next week, regardless of the outcome of the Ravens-Colts game on Sunday.

Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley also has an interview lined up with the Eagles, regardless of whether or the Seahawks win against the Redskins. There are reports that the Eagles' top candidate is Oregon's Chip Kelly. [tweet]
