Chargers interview Seahawks’ Gus Bradley


Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is the latest candidate to interview for the Chargers’ head-coaching vacancy.

Bradley interviewed on Thursday night, NFL Network’s Albert Breer reports. As an assistant on a team that won a wild-card playoff game, Bradley can interview for head-coaching vacancies this week, but he cannot interview next week if the Seahawks beat the Falcons.

The Chargers are also interviewing former Bears head coach Lovie Smith, who is believed to be en route to San Diego at the moment, and former Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt is also a candidate in San Diego.

New Chargers G.M. Tom Telesco is also reportedly interested in Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who worked with Telesco in Indianapolis last year, and Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.

    Bradley, Zimmer, whisenhunt? Wow, great start to the head coaching search for the rookie GM. 3 out of the top 4 guys i am hoping for! Hopefully he picks one of those 3 or Roman from SF and not Lovie!

    PFT Photo Dept. strikes again!

    He’s playing, “hide the football”.

    Gus is expected to sign right after he delivers twins.

    If Seahawks value Bradley, they should just pay to keep him. Richest owner in the league, and no salary cap for coaches.

    My choice for My Eagles. Tough no nonsense coach.

    Based on what happened before and what’s happened since, I’m fairly certain that Kurt Warner took the Cardinals to the Super Bowl, not Ken Whisenhunt.

    Didn’t spearchucker Jones call that play in MASH?

  13. phillyphever says: Jan 11, 2013 1:44 PM

    Hands off San Diego, he’s ours.

    Or….as he is affectionately known in the locker room…”Gut” Bradley.

    I think Bradley has done a solid job for Seattle. But his schemes at times are suspect (examples 3rd downs throughout season or specifically a bad example Bears game). The talent that we have I would love to see aggressive calls on 3rd downs especially 3rd + 8 which Seattle has done as good as anybody (Bobby Wagner, Wright, Earl Thomas, Big Kam and even Johnson can get to QB’s but they are blitzed so rarely) We have a big game I would hope that every minute of his time would be focused on ATL.

    Agree with oldbyrd,this guy would be the best choice in Philly but its said that owner Lurie and glorified account and now the teams current GM Howie(H&R Block) Roseman are set on a “offensive” guy.I guess the reason the birds brain trust is set on a offensive guy is because they have won so many Super Bowls going that route…wait a minute….

    We don’t want him.

  22. dolphins4 says: Jan 11, 2013 2:58 PM

    The Chargers ought to spend as much as needed to hire Gus Bradley.

  23. dolphins4 says: Jan 11, 2013 3:00 PM

    The last no nonsense coach the Eagles had was Ray Rhoads and how did that work out.

  24. desertman1 says: Jan 11, 2013 3:13 PM

    I understand legally he can talk to other teams, but why not show some class and talk after the season is over.

    You aren’t too smart. Bevell is a fantastic O coord, NFL football isnt Madden the Video Game. He has a dynamic offense being learned on the fly by a rookie.
