The Tennessee Titans brought in another candidate on Wednesday to interview for their head coaching vacancy, speaking with current Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator and former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Caldwell.
Caldwell guide the Colts to the Super Bowl in 2009, where they lost to the New Orleans Saints, but was also presided over the team’s collapse two years ago when they finished 2-14 as Peyton Manning missed the entire season.
Caldwell, being a minority, satisfies the Rooney rule requirements for the Titans, who still have several other candidates to consider before making a hire.
The Titans interviewed Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden on Tuesday, and are scheduled to meet with Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer on Thursday.
Other coaching candidates that are still in the mix for interviews with the Titans include many whose teams are still in the playoffs – San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator and former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.
Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Rick Bisaccia, who was rumored as a possible candidate when Mike Munchak was hired in 2011, is also another name that has surfaced as a possibility.
