There is going to be some jockeying in the coming days between the five teams still without a head coach as they maneuver to get the best candidates.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports Colts’ offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is a finalist for the Chicago head coaching job. He is set to interview in San Diego on Wednesday. The Eagles announced Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is getting a second interview Tuesday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported earlier Monday that Bradley may be a favorite for the San Diego job along with Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, who interviewed with the Chargers on Monday. Schefter reported the San Diego job is the one McCoy, who has interested from all five teams, wants. Arizona, believed to be highly interested in McCoy, and will interview him for a second time Tuesday.

The Chargers have been interviewing candidates for the past several days. With the process heating up around the league, we may see some decisions made soon.

In other AFC West news:
  • New Kansas City coach Andy Reid confirmed the expected -- the Chiefs will stay a 3-4 defense and that he will call the offensive plays. Also, the Kansas City Star reports defensive staff holdovers Gary Gibbs (linebackers) and Emmitt Thomas (secondary) may remain on the staff.
  • Kansas City front-office man Ray Farmer is a finalist Cleveland general manager job, according to Fox Sports. He probably doesn’t have much of a future in Kansas City, anyway. He was bypassed in favor of John Dorsey for the general manager job.
  • The Broncos’ brass stands by its late-game decisions in a double overtime loss to the Ravens on Saturday.
