Yesterday, we discussed Ken Whisenhunt's pending head coaching job interviews, but no teams were confirmed. This morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported via Twitter:
Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt is scheduled to have HC interviews with Lions today, with Titans on Friday, and with Browns on Saturday. Busy man— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 9, 2014
The Lions job seems like an incredibly good fit for Whisenhunt and his offensive philosophy. They have immense talent on that side of the ball and also sport an above average unit. It's hard to imagine any coach turning that job down given those factors and the fact that ownership was quite patient with its former head coach.
The Titans and Browns both fired their most recent head coaches after relatively short stints in their roles. The Browns, in particular, looks incredibly dysfunctional, and it's not unreasonable to think that more than a few head coaching candidates would want to avoid getting involved there.
It is unclear who the favorite for these jobs is or will be, but it's looking more and more like Whisenhunt's time with the Chargers could be coming to an end.
