The game of musical chairs continues to play on in the NFL coaching circle.

Lovie Smith, who was let go by the Chicago Bears on New Years Eve, is reportedly scheduled to interview with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday for the recently vacated coaching position left open by former head coach, Andy Reid. The news was first announced on the Eagles website Tuesday afternoon.

Smith will be the fourth candidate to interview for the position, following in the footsteps of Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong and Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Bruce Arians, offensive coordinator for the Indianapolis Colts; Gus Braldey, the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahwaks; and Jay Gruden, offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals are also reportedly supposed to meet with the Eagles about the coaching position, according to Dan Hanzus of NFL.com.

Reid wasted virtually no time in moving on after the Eagles fired him Dec. 31. He went from having a job that earned him the title of longest tenured coach in the NFL to now being the new head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs as of Jan 4.  Smith, meanwhile, spent nine seasons as head coach, going 81-63 and taking the Bears to three division titles, two NFL title games and one Super Bowl.
