Detroit Lions coaching search tracker

A look at who might be in the mix for the Detroit Lions' head coaching job.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

With the Detroit Lions' coaching search entering its second week, several potential candidates have been linked to the team. There's only been one interview as of Jan. 6, but that's going to change this week as the search continues.

In order to keep track of all the developments as Detroit tries to find its next head coach, I've put together a Lions coaching search tracker. It includes the coaches who have drawn seemingly legitimate interest from the Lions since the search started, and it will be updated as more names pop up and as additional interviews are scheduled. Check it out:

Coach Current job Current team Interview?
Jim Caldwell Offensive coordinator Baltimore Ravens
Yes (January 3) | hired by Lions on January 14
Gary Kubiak None None Yes (January 7)
Mike Munchak None None Yes (January 8)
Ken Whisenhunt Offensive coordinator San Diego Chargers

Jay Gruden Offensive coordinator Cincinnati Bengals
No | hired by Washington Redskins
Lovie Smith None None No | hired by Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bill O'Brien Head coach Penn State No | hired by Houston Texans
