Report: Aaron Glenn schedules second interview for Colts head coaching job
There are only two NFL head coaching positions left to fill this cycle: the Indianapolis Colts and the Arizona Cardinals. Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn interviewed for both positions, and he’s now reportedly scheduled for a second interview with the Colts. According to CBS Sports’ Jonathan Jones, Glenn will have a second in-person interview with the Colts on Thursday.
Before you start freaking out about losing Glenn, it’s worth putting Glenn’s second interview into context. He will become the eighth Colts candidate to re-interview for the job, joining Jeff Saturday, Raheem Morris, Shane Steichen, Ejiro Evero, Wink Martindale, Brian Callahan and Richard Bisaccia. So, yes, it looks like Glenn is a finalist for the job, but the Colts haven’t narrowed that field down to a few names. They do a very thorough interview process.
As for the work of the cardinals, everything has been calm on this front for a few days now. A few of their top candidates (Dan Quinn and Frank Reich) have moved or been hired elsewhere, so it’s unclear where Glenn ranks among the other four or five known candidates for this position.
The Lions have already lost a top coach on staff, as it was reported earlier Wednesday that assistant head coach/running backs coach Duce Staley was joining the Carolina Panthers staff with Reich.
We’ll have to wait and see if Glenn is among the other coaching changes the Lions will face. You can follow the latest news on Glenn’s candidacy with our tracker here.
