The Philadelphia Eagles are still mulling their head-coaching vacancy and met on Monday with Ken Whisenhunt, the recently fired Arizona Cardinals coach.

The Eagles announced the interview on the same day they plan to interview Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.

The organization has cast a wide net in search of Andy Reid's replacement. The Eagles interviewed NFL Network's Brian Billick for several hours last week,'s Ian Rapoport reported Sunday. Team brass also sat down with Notre Dame's Brian Kelly.

Whoever winds up with the role inherits a team that went 4-12 this season, but offers an intriguing figure at quarterback in Nick Foles, who made six starts during his rookie campaign. Michael Vick is still in the mix, but is widely expected to be jettisoned in the offseason.

Other candidates include former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Atlanta Falcons special teams coach Keith Armstrong, and Atlanta's defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.
