[Editor’s note: Every day, we’ll post a new update on the various coaching and G.M. vacancies, until all of them are filled. Or until we lose interest. Or forget to do it.]
Arizona Cardinals: The Cardinals reportedly are negotiating with Steve Keim for the franchise’s G.M. position. The Cardinals also have interviewed defensive coordinator Ray Horton and Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy to fill their coaching vacancy. They plan to interview Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden. The Cardinals also sought permission to interview Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley, but to date Haley has not accepted.
Carolina Panthers: The G.M. candidates include in-house interim hire Brandon Beane, Titans V.P. of player personnel Lake Dawson, Giants senior pro personnel analyst Dave Gettleman, Vikings assistant G.M. George Paton, Montral Alouettes G.M. Jim Popp, and Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross, according to the Charlotte Observer.
Chicago Bears: G.M. Phil Emery’s list of candidates for head coach is now at 13: Bears special-teams coordinator Dave Toub, Vikings linebackers coach Mike Singletary, Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman, Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, Falcons special-teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, Cowboys special-teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis, Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements, Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, and Vikings special-teams coordinator Mike Priefer.
Cleveland Browns: The Browns are looking at Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton, former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, and Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman. A Monday reported that the Browns “might” be interested in Jon Gruden was quickly shot down by a source with direct knowledge of the search process.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Candidates for the vacant G.M. job include Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell, Cardinals V.P. of player personnel Steve Keim, 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble, and Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross. Caldwell has interviewed three times, but some believe Caldwell and the Jags are at impasse over money.
Kansas City Chiefs: Packers director of operations John Dorsey and former Browns G.M. Tom Heckert are among the candidates to replace Scott Pioli as G.M. Coach Andy Reid says that the hire will be made by owner Clark Hunt.
New York Jets: 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble was believed to be the leading candidate, but some say his interview didn’t go well. Other candidates include Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross and Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell, who is getting a second interview.
Philadelphia Eagles: The Eagles’ current candidates include Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, Falcons special-teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, and Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden. Former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski has said that Jon Gruden would be interested in the job, but that the Eagles have yet to contact Gruden.
San Diego Chargers: Chargers director of player personnel Jimmy Raye and Colts vice president of football operations Tom Telesco are considered to be the top candidates for the G.M. job. 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble is due to interview on Tuesday. Coaching candidates include Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, but that process won’t get rolling until the Chargers have a new G.M.
