Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt has plenty to keep him busy this week.
He will be preparing the Chargers offense to face the Broncos in a Divisional Round matchup on Sunday while also reportedly interviewing for three head coaching vacancies. The newest addition to that list of conversations is the Browns, who Adam Schefter of ESPN reports will speak to Whisenhunt on Saturday. That will follow a Thursday interview with the Lions and a conversation with the Titans on Friday.
The interview with Cleveland may have a familiar ring to it for Whisenhunt. His Saturday interview with Cleveland would take place almost exactly a year after he had a second interview with the team as they searched for a coach for the 2013 season. Cleveland settled on Rob Chudzinski and gave him a four-year deal that they decided was a bad idea after less than a year on the job.
Whisenhunt is considered a strong candidate to wind up with his second head coaching job this offseason, with Detroit believed to be particularly interested in having him replace Jim Schwartz on their sideline. Whisenhunt was 45-41 in six years with Arizona and took the team to the first Super Bowl in franchise history after the 2008 season.
