One of the coaching cycle’s hottest candidates will continue his interviewing tour in the coming days.

While Robert Saleh is reportedly interviewing with the Eagles on Thursday, NFL media’s Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo report the Chargers are expected to bring in Saleh for a second interview.

Saleh first spoke with the Chargers on Jan. 9. Saleh has also drawn interest from the Lions and Falcons as well as the Jets, who interviewed him for a second time on Tuesday. The Jaguars interviewed Saleh, but are reportedly finalizing a deal with Urban Meyer.

Saleh is the first known candidate that Los Angeles will bring in for a second interview.

  1. Before the Chargers go jumping the gun on Saleh I hope they realize Adam Gase is available.

  2. Unless I’m missing something they need to get Bienemy. He helped turn a young, talented QB into a super star. Exactly the kind of coach the Chargers need.

  3. Its so Chargers! Draft o good looking you QB that could be the face of the franchise for 15 years. So let’s hire a defensive coach.

  4. It doesn’t matter if the head coach is a “defensive guy”. It’s the OC that’s important.

  5. If they hire Saleh, that would make the OC position the most coveted one around – nothing like working with a rising star QB and solid HC to improve one’s prospects. They could probably have their pick of talent in that role.

  6. The name of the game in the NFL has become offense, offense, and more offense. That’s what most the fan base wants to see. When a defense shuts off what the offense wants to do, you need an offensive minded coach to create something different. Sometime that may be at halftime. It can be an OC, but the HC must let him do it. If you hire a defensive minded coach, will he let the OC do his job and not override him? That’s the real question here. You need a true leader as your HC. Someone the players will follow and buy what he is selling. If that a defensive coach, he needs to hire a strong OC and let him do what he thinks best.

    I think that is a great idea and one all Jets fans would endorse. It would prevent their incompetent ownership from rehiring Gase.

  8. I like Saleh. Maybe he can help with the strength and conditioning aspect as well, toughen up this team. Looking forward to greatness down the road if Saleh is onboard.

  9. The only time the Spanos’ have ever had a former DC as head coach in their 35 years of ownership was Marty.
