It has been rumored for a while that Mike Zimmer is the favorite in Minnesota. They will have him in for another chat this week. The Titans haven't announced a second round of interviews yet.

They might not have any if yesterday's report from Adam Schefter is true about the Titans being "smitten" with Seattle. Dan Quinn was the name that Jim Wyatt put out there from the start.

When it comes to these searches it is always going to be a bit of a crap shoot, but I hope Ruston Webster has had an open mind when talking to these other guys. It is not a good idea to have a candidate you are set on- especially when you haven't interviewed him yet.

The Vikings are doing in right. Here is there list of interviews per PFT:

49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman and defensive line coach Jim Tomsula interviewed on Saturday, joining Zimmer, Bowles, Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton, Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.
That is a pretty exhaustive list.
