More On The Kansas City Chiefs Coaching Search

Earlier this morning ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Kansas City Chiefs were scheduled to interview Joe Philbin, the Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator. It's the first bit of real Chiefs news (outside of informed speculation) regarding the coaching search.

I found Philbin's inclusion into the search interesting because the Packers are currently in the playoffs, and could make a Super Bowl run. That would mean the Chiefs couldn't hire him until after the Super Bowl ended, which was one of the criticisms of Todd Haley's hiring -- that it came so late in the year (early February).

But the Philbin part wasn't the most interesting part of Schefter's report (to me at least).

He also reported that the Chiefs have had several interviews already, including some before the season ended. That gives us a slight clue as to the Chiefs other coaching candidates: If the interviews happened before the season ended, then those coaches were currently out of work (or they're college coaches).

That narrows the list down a little bit but we still don't know who those candidates are, outside of Philbin and Crennel. The "A" list name this year is Jeff Fisher, who is out of work right now, but I would guess he's not one of the guys who interviewed in KC considering Fisher's name has been in the media connected to multiple jobs already and we haven't heard him connected to the Chiefs.

So the Chiefs have been working away at the coaching search. I just wish we knew all the candidates' names.
