In a bit of a departure, since he is neither a college coach nor named Kelly, the Eagles have announced they have interviewed former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt for their head coaching job.

And even more candidates are on deck, as they continue Bears-like to interview everyone under the sun.

According to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News, they’re also expected to talk to Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden today, then Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians on Tuesday.

There’s a fine line between an exhaustive search and an excessive one. In the case of the Eagles in particular, they’ve had months to winnow their list, and continuing to add names as college coaches use them as a lever only adds to the perception they’ve been stood up by their preferred candidates.
