Chiefs Interviewing Packers Offensive Coordinator, According To Report

It's been awfully quiet on the Kansas City Chiefs head coaching search with interim coach Romeo Crennel as the only known candidate but we now have another name to throw into the ring -- Joe Philbin. He's the Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator and, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Chiefs are scheduled to interview Philbin tonight.

Even more interesting is that Schefter reports the Chiefs have had "several interviews" for the head coaching job. We don't know the names of any of those guys, outside of Crennel and now Philbin.

Philbin came to Green Bay in 2003 as the assistant offensive line coach and took over the offensive line by 2006. In 2007, he was named the Packers offensive coordinator, a position he's held ever since.

The only connection to the Chiefs I see with Philbin is a friend-of-a-friend sorta thing -- he coached with Kirk Ferentz at Iowa back at the turn of the century (I always wanted to say "turn of the century'). I'm sure there are other connections we don't know about.

We'll be getting to know Philbin more in the coming days (or hours, really).
