Eagles to Interview Bradley, Arians
The Eagles have received permission to interview Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians for their head-coaching vacancy.
Arians and Bradley will be available for interviews next week, both will be coaching their respective teams in this weekend's Wild Card Weekend.
Arians served as the interim head coach of the Colts while Chuck Pagano was out and is a candidate for coach of the year honors, helping the Colts to a 11-5 record after going 2-14 last season.
Arians has head coaching experience, serving in that role for the Temple Owls from 1983-1988, going 21-39. He was also the offensive coordinator for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns.
The main knock on Arians has been his age - he is 60 years old.
Bradley is the head of one of the best defensive units in the league, this season Seattles' defense allowed opponents to gain 306.2 yards (4th in the league) and to score 15.3 points per game (1st). Last year the Seahawks finished in the top 10 in both categories.
