The offseason is not even officially here for the NFL and yet it has already been so exciting. Some teams have already fired their coaches from 2012 and hired new people to coach their squads in 2013. The Browns hired the former offensive coordinator, Rob Chudzinski. We know the Chiefs hired former Eagles coach Andy Reid. The Bills went out and snagged ex-Syracuse head coach, Doug Marrone.
Other than that, most teams are still trying to find the right guy, including the Cardinals. It seems that each race is coming closer to crossing the finish line, though. Arizona is bringing in Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy for a second interview one day after he interviewed with the Chargers. Either McCoy or Horton is likely to be the pick in the desert.

Then you have the Philadelphia Eagles, who were passed on by three separate college coaches in Chip Kelly, Brian Kelly and Bill O'Brien. Now, they have their sights on Gus Bradley, the defensive coordinator for the Seahawks, Lovie Smith and they interviewed former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt last Saturday.
The Bears have now interviewed somewhere around 15 people, but seem to be limiting it down. Finalists for the job are said to include Marc Trestman, the head coach of the Montreal Alouettes, Bruce Arians, an assistant coach with the Colts and Darrell Bevell, an offensive coordinator with Seattle.

Seattle DC Gus Bradley is also said to be in the running for the Jaguars job as well.
In addition to his second interview with the Eagles, Seattle DC Gus Bradley has an interview set up with the Jaguars for later in the week.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 15, 2013
As for the Chargers, they are interviewing, but no candidates have been rumored to land the job. This tweet from Adam Schefter pretty much sums it all up.
So Cardinals to interview Mike McCoy again, Eagles to interview Gus Bradley again, Bears to interview Marc Trestman and Darrell Bevell again— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 15, 2013
Where will the wheel stop for each of these NFL franchises?
