Report: Redskins to interview Jim Caldwell

Jim Caldwell AP

Jim Caldwell’s dance card is filling up.

The Ravens offensive coordinator is drawing interest from the Lions for their head coaching vacancy and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Caldwell is also slated to interview with the Redskins. Washington fired Mike Shanahan earlier this week after four seasons in charge.

Caldwell became the head coach in Indianapolis in 2009 when Tony Dungy stepped down and took the Colts to the Super Bowl in his first year. They went to the playoffs again the next year, but Peyton Manning missed the entire 2011 season and Caldwell was fired after going 2-14 with a Manning-less roster.

Caldwell was a quarterbacks coach and assistant head coach in Indianapolis for seven years before moving up to the top job and also spent eight years as Wake Forest’s head coach earlier in his career. The Ravens won the Super Bowl last year after Caldwell replaced Cam Cameron as the offensive coordinator, but the team struggled on that side of the ball this season.

Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott are also on the Redskins interview list.

    can anyone say Rooney Rule?

  2. f1restarter says: Jan 1, 2014 2:54 PM

    Rooney Rule compliance, nothing to see here.

  3. realnflmaster says: Jan 1, 2014 2:55 PM

    Ray Horton. Todd Bowles. Lovie Smith. Yet they choose this guy?

    LOL

    Jim Caldwell and Washington deserve each other.

  5. doe22us says: Jan 1, 2014 2:57 PM

    Poor Caldwell a product of the Rooney Rule, making the interview circuit.

    NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rooney.

  8. artvan15 says: Jan 1, 2014 2:59 PM

    Most of these teams are just going through the motions interviewing Caldwell and Smith.

    RG3>Flacco

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

    Rooney Rule.

  12. bangarrang says: Jan 1, 2014 3:00 PM

    Rooney rule? I only assume that’s why because what would make somebody want to interview the OC for a horrible offense?

  13. mrcogburn says: Jan 1, 2014 3:01 PM

    Clearly a Rooney Rule fill-the-circle interview. Nothing more.

  14. askbri says: Jan 1, 2014 3:05 PM

    Any interview Caldwell gets it for the Rooney rule. Guy is terrible.

  15. jackmack555 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:06 PM

    I THOUGHT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR A COACH WITH FIRE IN THE BELLY!!! THIS GUY IS COMATOSED ZOMBIE ON THE SIDELINE.

  16. craigmaitland says: Jan 1, 2014 3:06 PM

    Interviewing a black coach for no reason other than to comply with affirmative actions rules. What a sham.

  17. logicalvoiceseys says: Jan 1, 2014 3:07 PM

    Anyone who would actually hire him would be stupid. Rooney Rule here.

  19. jacobk621 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:08 PM

    Ravens should pick up some of his contract if Snyder hires him ,,

  20. justrunit11 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:09 PM

    good scapegoat for a year or two

  21. drewzducks says: Jan 1, 2014 3:11 PM

    Didn’t realize he had hired Peyton as his QB/OC.

  22. onbucky96 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:11 PM

    WARNING! TOKEN ROONEY INTERVIEW!

  23. daltongang1 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:12 PM

    Wow….. All of my Ravens buddies are cheering!

  24. therealraider says: Jan 1, 2014 3:15 PM

    Jim Caldwell has interviewed with 3 teams.. All by way of text messaging.

  25. syphermce says: Jan 1, 2014 3:20 PM

    This guy is a HORRIBLE coach. Nothing more than a puppet. PLEASE NO! I’ll become a fan of a CFL team if this guy is our next head coach.

  26. seatownballers says: Jan 1, 2014 3:20 PM

    Every team with a vacancy will interview this guy. But not hire him. Enough said

  27. iceburgskin202 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:21 PM

    If like to have Caldwell of all the candidates I hear he and smith are the most accomplished so take the Rooney rule talk and shove it. Gruden and cowher aren’t coming back so whose resume is better?

  28. ketch20too says: Jan 1, 2014 3:24 PM

    in fairness to Caldwell the C olts gave him zero options for a backup QB..Curtis Painter?!?!? And he did turn Ravens O around last year. Still don’t see much promise a HC though

  29. amgdds says: Jan 1, 2014 3:29 PM

    I think he’d make a great choice.

    -Dan Rooney

  30. stevenwilliams2013 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:31 PM

    He would be a great for RG3. He would be a good teacher and mentor to him.

    The 2 -14 year with the Colts was not his fault. Manning went down and they had crappy back-ups.

  31. dowhatifeellike says: Jan 1, 2014 3:35 PM

    Take him. Please. Ravens need an OC who doesn’t spend the first half feeling out the defense before figuring out what to do.

  32. number1hawkfan says: Jan 1, 2014 3:38 PM

    Where’s @logicalvoicesays????? I thought the Redskins job was the best in the NFL. Nothing against Caldwell but I think if the Skins were such a great franchise they would do a little better than that. Could it be that they have zero young talent because they mortgaged it for RG3?? That’s a bad move by a bad franchise. Could it be that ownership is foolish?? Could it be that RG3 just isn’t that good of a leader?? All reasons none of the better coaches available won’t be going to Washington. I’m sure you’ll have something “logical” to say soon. I won’t hold my breath though.

  33. rubenxx7 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:44 PM

    when will the rooney rule end!! but i would rather have washington hire him than detroit. i still cant get over how much sean paytin out coached him in the superbowl. caldweell is best just a positional coach period!

  34. vbe2 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:45 PM

    Got that token interview out of the way. Now for the real candidate.

  35. pftaddict says: Jan 1, 2014 3:50 PM

    Jim Caldwell is perhaps the only coach that could make Jim Zorn look like a genius. If the Redskins wanted to comply with the Rooney rule, all they had to do was interview Raheem Morris before he left town.

  36. ravensdominate says: Jan 1, 2014 3:52 PM

    Could you imagine going from an organization like the ravens to a dead end job like the Redskins??? Who wants to inherit that mess??

  37. jjbadd385 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:52 PM

    he’s like a MIME on the sidelines! Rooney Rule for sure..

  38. koolrepetoire says: Jan 1, 2014 3:53 PM

    If this really were to comply with the Rooney rule wouldn’t Raheem Morris be scheduled? He is still the DB Coach & he does have a NFL Coach of the Year on his resume. Jim Caldwell is qualified. Give me Michael Oher @ RT from FA, & Anquan Boldin @ WR opposite Pierre Garcon’ & we will win the NFC East next year. Yes I said it.

  39. tiger2471 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:54 PM

    This is a good coach, I really hope we can get him here in DC or coach Lovie Smith.

  40. duece8 says: Jan 1, 2014 3:56 PM

    Why is there a Rooney rule for coaches????? Beings that there are NO WHITE cornerbacks in the league that start, wheres the Bill Parcells rule?? Or whatever

  41. westsiiide says: Jan 1, 2014 3:57 PM

    No Morris wouldn’t be on scheduled if they have no interest in making him their HC. They wouldn’t interview someone in house they have no intention of hiring if they want him to stay around.

  42. baddegg says: Jan 1, 2014 4:00 PM

    Nobody wants the worst job in the NFL.

    —————–

    Although it’s “Internet Common Sense” that no one is going to want the Redskins HC job because the organization is such a ‘joke’, in reality this reasoning is incredibly ignorant.

    Do you guys realize that at any one time, there are only 32 NFL HC jobs? Now think about all of the coaches in pros and colleges trying desparately to climb the ladder of success.

    Newsflash to the cretins: no matter HOW disfunctional the Redskins get, they will always be able to attract and hire a qualified coach. Always. Period. If you don’t see that you are just wrong.

    The real question is whether they will have the wisdom to hire the right one. Sure they can screw it up. But to just say, “no one will go there” is flat out ignorant.

  43. commonsensedude says: Jan 1, 2014 4:03 PM

    Why is it that when Caldwell, who took his team to the Super Bowl with a HOF QB and barely lost, gets interviewed, people here view it as a Rooney Rule interview? But when someone mentions Ken Whisenhunt, who took his team to the Super Bowl with another HOF QB and also barely lost, he is taken much more seriously?

    Both Caldwell and Whisenhunt started to tank when their star quarterbacks went away. But they are both credible candidates and yet Whisenhunt isn’t mocked when his name comes up while Caldwell’s is. Why is that??

  44. donttrip22 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:07 PM

    Why would anyone coach this team with RGIII as the QB ? Did anyone notice this guy is not a team player ala Jeff George its all about me me me good luck to the sucker who does take the job

  45. swampfox42 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:20 PM

    Get a long contract, whoever becomes head coach in that pit of vipers

  46. boyshole25 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:21 PM

    Number1hawkfan, the redskins have alot more talented young players than they used to. Was rgiii worth 2 firsts? Time will tell. But to spew your idiotic diatribe just shows your hate to hate, without any logic behind it.

  47. football1932 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:22 PM

    Why not just take a peek at Todd Bowles?

  48. petehemlock says: Jan 1, 2014 4:25 PM

    Isn’t that the puppet Irsay hired to TANK THE SEASON for Luck?

  49. washfootball says: Jan 1, 2014 4:26 PM

    Definitely to comply with Rooney rule. In reality, Snyder and Allen want a coach who will work with rg3 and won’t be as arrogant and won’t question Allen and Snyder actions.
    I can’t blame Snyder for getting involved again after spending 35 million on shanahan. If someone is going to lose his 35millions then might as well be part of it. Allen is cerato 2. As a skins fan, I hope we land a real good coach who is willing to take a any role to prove himself. Otherwise we are in for another several losing seasons.

  50. thunderskins007 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:30 PM

    The Redskins will interview this bum to comply with a rule that shouldn’t exist. Now we can get on with the business of hiring the best man for the job regardless of skin color. I personally would like to see DC of Arizona brought for an interview.

  51. bigredscouting says: Jan 1, 2014 4:33 PM

    Jim Caldwell drove the Colts into the ground. Peyton or not. Now, he runs the offense for the Ravens who didn’t make the playoffs for the first time in what, 5-7 years. He can’t handle the pressure of the media that surrounds the ‘Skins.

    This has got to be a Rooney rule interview. Which is awful, because there are other head coaches candidate that are more qualified than Caldwell…and just so happen to be black.

  52. rayjayjohnsonjr says: Jan 1, 2014 4:35 PM

    Have the Skins promised to give him a working headset also?

  53. rg3andthensome says: Jan 1, 2014 4:36 PM

    I actually like this potential. He would mesh with the players well.

    I hope that he has a shot.

  54. Phil says: Jan 1, 2014 4:36 PM

    -Makes playoffs 2 out of the 3 years he’s a head coach, winning the Super Bowl in one of the years

    -OC to a team that lost in the Super Bowl last season

    Yes clearly not a credible candidate for HC.

  55. purplereign52 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:38 PM

    As a ravens fan, I would love to see this guy get a head coaching job somewhere…just so the ravens wouldn’t have to fire him. Please let him go so we can go hire Norv Turner as our Offensive Coordinator

  56. bigredscouting says: Jan 1, 2014 4:38 PM

    Give me Michael Oher @ RT from FA, & Anquan Boldin @ WR opposite Pierre Garcon’ & we will win the NFC East next year. Yes I said it.

    You would fit right in with the Skins management. Overpay in free agency, ignore the draft. Wait, are you Daniel Snyder?

  57. gfcf42489 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:47 PM

    Why anyone wants this guy as HC is beyond me.

  58. rooneyruleblues says: Jan 1, 2014 4:52 PM

    I would agree with this statement if you had said “they will always be able to attract and hire a qualified coach that had no other options.”

    If you think any coach who has an offer from the Redskin Potatoes AND an offer another team isn’t going to the other team, you’re the one who is “just wrong”.

  60. jiggy3198 says: Jan 1, 2014 4:57 PM

    They will probably hire him because the owner knows he can control him like a puppet. Caldwell will do anything that Snyder says. But as a ravens fan please take him I want another offensive coordinator

  61. dcapettini says: Jan 1, 2014 4:59 PM

    Since no one would seriously entertain the notion of hiring Caldwell, he must be a Rooney rule stand in. Of course that means that they are not going to bring in Lovie Smith, the obvious best candidate for the job. Snyder already knows who he is going to hire which is why he had to bet a Black interview out of the way early. I don’t know who it is but the team needs defense if it ever going to go anywhere and that is easier to fix than offense, or at least cheaper. Any money on offense should go to the O-line. We will never know if RGIII is any good until someone blocks for him.

  62. harrisonhits2 says: Jan 1, 2014 5:00 PM

    On the one hand the Washington team is a terrible destination and almost sure fail for any coach with RGFragileEgo at the helm.

    But when you stop and think about it, even at the low level of pay for an NFL head coach, something like 3-3.5 million a year, all you have to do is last 1-2 years and your family is set for life.

    Its unlikely they’ll get any sort of established head coach whose already made the big bucks, but there will be some young up and comer who will go for the money and worry about what happens after he’s fired at that point.

  63. logicalvaginasays says: Jan 1, 2014 5:01 PM

    Yawn…….Allen’s hopping around doing interviews is all red herring.
    Danny boy has deal done…with coach who is not on anyone’s radar.

  64. jjbadd385 says: Jan 1, 2014 5:01 PM

    Did Phil ^^^^^ just say the Ravens lost the Superbowl last year? Sadly, as a Broncos fan, while I wish it were true, they won….

  65. ytivarg says: Jan 1, 2014 5:02 PM

    This is short journey from Baltimore to DC in a rooney highway

  66. wildcatjoe says: Jan 1, 2014 5:06 PM

    Caldwell is the reason Flacco had so many interceptions.

  67. koolrepetoire says: Jan 1, 2014 5:42 PM

    bigredscout says: You would fit right in with the Skins management. Overpay in free agency, ignore the draft. Wait, are you Daniel Snyder? ………………………… Overpay in Free Agency? Dude hush. Anquan Boldin is over 30 he would get at best a 3 year deal. He won a Superbowl last year, he’s a 80-100 reception type WR, great for the Redskins locker room, would replace Moss in the slot, rarely drops a pass, & RG3 needs this type of player. 3 years 18 million or so. Michael Oher is definitely a huge upgrade over Polumbus. He also won a Superbowl last year, he’s just 26 years old, & he is a dominant run blocker & an above average pass protector. With Boldin, Garcon’, Reed at TE, to go with Morris, & RG3 the offense would be balanced out. On defense, give me Phillip Thomas back healthy, Rambo starting, DRC in FA, or Talib if NE doesn’t franchise him, or Sam Shields, pick up Denver’s ILB Wesley Woodyard, sign KR Jacoby Jones, & use the 25-30 million in cap room wisely. In the 2014 draft the 34th pick needs to be a can’t miss LG or a LB with speed, a sure tackler, who can cover RB’s & TE’s. The 2nd pick in each round after per se builds depth. The Redskins are very young at many key positions. 2 QB’s, RB, LT, TE, OLB’s, & Rambo, Thomas, & Amerson need coaching up.

  68. winstonjed44 says: Jan 1, 2014 5:47 PM

    People are acting like Jim Caldwell is the worst coach of all time. In Indy he went to the SB his first season, sure Peyton carried the team but still at least a little credit is deserved. Went to the playoffs again the next season and then they lost Manning and the team had zero backup plan and collapsed. They had Kerry Collins at age 38, Curtis Painter and Mr 0-16 Dan Orvlosky replacing Manning with a terrible defense that was built to play with a lead. Vince Lombardi couldn’t have saved that team. Don’t think he should be a head coach right now with the talent out there, but he is getting an undeserved bad wrap.

  69. ericbleedspurple says: Jan 1, 2014 5:55 PM

    As a Baltimore Raven fan I’m hoping one of these teams hires Jim because it’s time to gut our coaching staff and hire some new and creative coaches. Please take Castillo with you.

  70. ericbleedspurple says: Jan 1, 2014 6:03 PM

    It’s obvious that Jim Caldwell being interviewed by multiple teams is due to the Rooney rule. On the other hand Lovie Smith is a very legitimate and serious candidate. The Rooney rule has nothing to do with him.

  71. theravenlives2 says: Jan 1, 2014 6:05 PM

    Michael Oher is definitely a huge upgrade over Polumbus. He also won a Superbowl last year, he’s just 26 years old, & he is a dominant run blocker & an above average pass protector.
    ================================
    You’re kidding, right? Oher lead the NFL in false starts this year, and almost fot Flacco killed. Calling him awful is generous! If the Redskins sign Oher as a free agent, the DESERVE to get RGIII (or Kurt Cousins) pummelled.

  72. koolrepetoire says: Jan 1, 2014 6:08 PM

    A black QB deserves a black HC. We haven’t seen this combo successful since Dennis Green & Randall Cunningham. Raheem Morris & Josh Freeman together did go 10-6. Now can we get a Rooney rule for ownership & being GM’s? I’m just sayin’.

  73. usa98j30t4 says: Jan 1, 2014 6:08 PM

    Maybe the Skins are taking a page from the Colts. Hire him. Tank the season. Get the first pick and fire him.

    Worked for the Colts.

A sitting duck if you take his 3rd & 40 checkdown to Rice away consistently. Oher is just 26, so you know he’s not in his prime yet & he can be coached up. Wait until Oher leaves & see what happens to Fluke-o. Ozzie better pull a rabbit out of his hat.

    Worked for the Colts.

    The Colts had him for three seasons, and they went to the SB the first year and the playoffs the next, and went 2-14 his third season so clearly you have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m a Colts fan and if you watched that season, you’d know it was just a bad football team and had no chance of winning without Manning the way it was built.

  77. ericbleedspurple says: Jan 1, 2014 6:22 PM

    @duece8 the Rooney rule states that teams must interview and consider a minority for a vacant head coaching job not hire one. There are no white corner backs in the NFL but but there are some in college to choose from so your logic is skewed. As a result of the Rooney rule quite a few qualified minority coaches have been hired that may have not been hired before the rule. It wasn’t implemented for show but because of a clear lack of qualified candidates not being considered. These franchises aren’t going to waste hard earned money to hire unqualified talent. Every hire or acquisition doesn’t work out but that’s true regardless of race. Happy new year all!!!

  78. koolrepetoire says: Jan 1, 2014 6:37 PM

    Will the NFL ever have a Black owner? Can we see more Black GM’s besides Ozzie Newsome & Martin Mayhew? White CB’s? Don’t they get converted to ILB’s in college? LOL

    1) Fly one of the above mentioned coaches in Danny’s jet

    And some people wonder why Skins fans are considered the most delusional fans in the League.

  81. adoombray says: Jan 1, 2014 6:48 PM

    Jim Caldwell turned Joe Flacco from a decent quarterback who couldnt carry a team to a bonafide star and superbowl champion. his work with Peyton Manning was also extensive and extremely productive. the fact that so many people immediately screamed Rooney Rule rather than taking into consideration his actual results is proof of just how badly the Rooney Rule is needed.

    The fact that he is boring to watch on the sidelines should be about the last thing taken into consideration with hiring a 5 million dollar + head coach of a professional football team.

  82. koolrepetoire says: Jan 1, 2014 6:56 PM

    bst3975 says: And some people wonder why Skins fans are considered the most delusional fans in the League. —————————– And many Skins fans wonder why do others care what we think about our team? You do know our Redskins have one of the biggest fanbases in the world right? Delusional? To sign Michael Oher is delusional? He will sign for a team this off-season you do know that right? The Redskins still have a glaring need at RT. Because of cap restrictions Polumbus was brought back this year along FA bargains Tony Pashos & Jerome Trueblood. Michael Oher is better than all of them.

  83. stevent92 says: Jan 1, 2014 7:03 PM

    A point that nobody on this thread seems to want to talk about is whether or not this is purely a Rooney Rule compliance.

  84. thesteelskirt says: Jan 1, 2014 7:35 PM

    Poor Jim Caldwell had become the Dennis Green of Rooney rule interviews. How can an OC with such a horrible offense be considered a top level interview?

  85. fatsolio says: Jan 1, 2014 7:41 PM

    If the reason for this isn’t to fill that stupid Rooney rule crap then wow, go Dan Snyder. Brilliant guy to possibly make your coach and have fun with yet more mediocrity.

    —————–

    I said nothing in my post about someone getting an offer from the Redskins and another program. I just said that based on the fact that there are only 32 HC jobs and many, many guys who want the job, they will always get someone who is qualified.

    You can’t put words in my mouth and then use those words to say I’m “wrong.”

    That said, I think if you look at someone getting offers from the Redskins and other club, there is a lot more context that needs to be filled in before saying which they would select: money, control, etc. etc. They obviously may opt for the other club, but you can’t just say a guy is gonna go to the Lions for $3 mill/year if Washington is offering $5 mill. That’s just a foolish statement on the face of it.

    koolrepetoire Oher has been at the top for false starts since he was drafted and a turn style was better suited to stop a speedy outside rusher than that joker. Please don’t go big mike the steelers will miss you showing the way to the QB!!!!

    The Rooney rule is so minority coaches can gain experience in the interviewing process, to learn & hopefully eventually get an opportunity from the obviously racist white hate-monger owners…. Like George Preston Marshall said, “I’ll hire some black football players when the Harlem Globetrotters hire some white basketball players!”

During the Ravens playoff run last year they only gave up 6 sacks as a team period. Also the majority of Ray Rice’s big runs are from running behind RG Yanda and RT Oher. “Big Mike” was a LT for 4 years. Last year he settled in at RT in the playoff run. Please don’t act like Woodley kills Oher. Plus Woodley is not a speed rusher.
