The daily (sort of) coaching/G.M. update

We post plenty of stories as the news emerges regarding the current coaching and G.M. searches.  Every day (approximately), we cobble together a comprehensive roundup of the latest news and information about each vacancy.

Our last full update came on Monday.  (So much for “approximately.”)  Which means that there should be plenty of new information in the latest edition.

Which means that you should read it — especially since it has been updated in light of recent developments.

Redskins:  Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden reportedly has agreed to accept the job.  Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell, Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, and Cowboys special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia have been interviewed.  Interviews were possible with Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, and 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman.  Vanderbilt coach James Franklin was reportedly scheduled to interview, but more recent reports suggest that he’ll either stay at Vanderbilt or go to Penn State.

    Miami is dragging their feet again, it’s like interviewing and evaluating personnel is something they have no knowledge of proper procedure and are looking for someone to tell them how not to screw up!

    It’s better than, “hurry, hurry”. Which I heard about 1000 times earlier.
