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.
