Spanos Gives Scoop on Past 24 Hours - Ricky Henne
Spanos: It is. You know, there’s no right or wrong way to do it necessarily, but when we interviewed Tom, we talked about how he would conduct a search, what types of questions he would ask and what kind of coach he’s looking for. The last few days, we’ve been in the process of finalizing our list of candidates. We’re now contacting candidates and putting together the interview schedule.
Tom Telesco's First Order of Business: Finding a Head Coach - Ricky Henne
"We need to find a head coach," he said. "That is number one. We are already working on that. Like I said, our lists are pretty similar which is great. We are a little bit ahead of the game.

Re-drafting the 2007 NFL draft class - Mel Kiper Jr. (Insider)
Maybe he should be higher. Weddle isn't a headhunter, and doesn't appear in the highlights all that often, but I'm not sure there's a steadier safety in the NFL. He's easily one of the top few cover safeties in the league, but he also adds a ton in the run game. Complete player.
