Gus Bradley leaves Philadelphia without Eagles job

There doesn't appear to be a leader in the clubhouse for the Philadelphia Eagles' head-coaching job.

Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who met with the Eagles on Tuesday for a second interview, left town Wednesday to talk with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to ESPN. The Jaguars reportedly also have contacted Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

Eagles fans, who seem to embrace Bradley, got excited when he came to town for a second meeting. Perhaps he will wind up being the team's head coach, but the Eagles clearly were not ready to make a deal with him after meeting for nearly seven hours, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The newspaper views former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt as another "favorite" for the gig, but the reality is no one knows at this stage. Including the Eagles.

The Jaguars, meanwhile, will have interviewed four candidates once they sit down with Bradley: St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden and Jaguars defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. The Jaguars started their coaching search the latest and probably will be the last team to finish up a search.

(That assumes, of course, that the Eagles and Cardinals do wind up actually hiring a coach.)
