Cardinals reportedly to interview Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell

Wednesday January 16th, 2013

The Arizona Cardinals will interview Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, according to Ian Rapoport of

The Cardinals were scheduled to interview Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Tuesday before he was announced as the Chargers new head coach.

Bevell, who has been credited with having a hand in the success of the Seahawks offense in 2012 and quarterback Russell Wilson's breakout rookie season, reportedly had a second interview with the Bears on Tuesday, and will also interview for the Jaguars head coach job.

Bevell joins Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton and Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden as reported candidates for the Arizona job. Horton interviewed with the Bills and Browns for their head coach openings, but was passed over for both opportunities. Gruden interviewed with the Cardinals on Thursday.

The Cardinals have not confirmed a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette report in which Steelers president Art Rooney II said offensive coordinator Todd Haley interviewed with the Cardinals last Wednesday. On Monday, the Post-Gazette reported that the Cardinals were unlikely to hire Haley because his asking price was too high.

Haley has history with the franchise, serving as offensive coordinator for the Cardinals' 2008 Super Bowl team before leaving to become head coach at Kansas City.
