The Eagles announced Friday afternoon they have been granted permission to interview Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley for their head coaching vacancy, Reuben Frank of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Arians, who coached Temple from 1983 through 1988, spent this year as interim head coach of the Colts while head coach Chuck Pagano battled leukemia. He spent the previous eight years with the Steelers, including 2007 through 2011 as offensive coordinator.
Bradley, a Monte Kiffin disciple, spent 2006 through 2008 on the Buccaneers’ defensive coaching staff before becoming defensive coordinator in Seattle in 2009.
Because the Seahawks and Colts both play in wild-card round playoff games this weekend, the Eagles cannot interview them until after their games end Sunday. The Seahawks face the Redskins in Landover at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, and the Colts are in Baltimore at 1 p.m.
The Eagles did not announce when or where the interviews will take place, although both will obviously be close geographically to Philly this weekend, with their teams playing in Maryland.
