Gus Bradley to Philadelphia Eagles not decided yet

Despite a rumor that Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley has accepted a head-coaching job with the Philadelphia Eagles, that process still has a ways to go.

Citing a source who spoke with the Eagles, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports no decision has been made.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reported the Eagles will have Bradley in for a second interview Tuesday afternoon in Philadelphia, but no deal is imminent, according to a source involved with the process.

Bradley first interviewed with the Eagles on Saturday in Atlanta, Breer reported. That conversation was squeezed in between Seattle's walkthroughs and meetings in preparation for Sunday's playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. The interview lasted a couple hours, and the Eagles still have more to work through with Bradley.

The Eagles, like the Chicago Bears, have spread a wide net in search of their next coach. The Eagles met with former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt and Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden on Monday, but neither of those meetings led to offers.

Other names that have appeared in the candidate pool include Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly, former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, Falcons special teams coach Keith Armstrong, Atlanta defensive coordinator Mike Nolan -- and former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick, who told Around the League on Monday he'd "never say never" to the right job.

UPDATE: The Eagles wrapped up their second interview with Bradley on Tuesday night.
