Eagles interview Ken Whisenhunt for coaching job, according to report

Tuesday January 15th, 2013

The Philadelphia Eagles interviewed former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt for their vacant head coaching opening on Monday, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported.

Whisenhunt joins a long list of potential candidates for the Eagles opening after they missed out on Oregon head coach Chip Kelly and Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly.

The Eagles interviewed former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick last week. Also on their list are Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, and former NFL coach and current ESPN commentator Jon Gruden, La Canfora reported.

Whisenhunt was a finalist for the Cleveland Browns opening, and he also is a candidate for the head coaching job with the San Diego Chargers. Whisenhunt had a 45-51 record in six seasons as Arizona's head coach, narrowly losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2009 Super Bowl. But his team did not have a winning record during his final three seasons in Arizona, and the Cardinals lost 11 of their final 12 games this season. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer later reported that the Eagles will interview Bradley for a second time on Tuesday.
