CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Greg Roman’s chances for a head coaching job are not dead.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Minnesota Vikings are planning on interviewing the San Francisco 49ers’ offensive coordinator Saturday in Charlotte. The 49ers arrived Friday night for their divisional playoff game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

This will be Roman’s first NFL head coaching interview. He interviewed at Penn State on Monday. That job went to Vanderbilt’s James Franklin. The Redskins were also interested in Roman, but an interview never materialized.

The Vikings also have interest in 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, and he could get an interview as well.
