Owner Dan Snyder met for the third time with Williams, who has been in charge of the Redskins' defense since 2004. Williams had a preliminary interview Wednesday and his first full session with the owner Saturday.
The interviews were confirmed by a person familiar with the selection process. He spoke on condition of anonymity because the Redskins haven't publicly stated the names of any candidates.
The person said Snyder also plans to interview Caldwell, Meeks and Mora, all of whom are available to talk this week now that their teams have been eliminated from the playoffs. Snyder has also interviewed Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and at least one other candidate.
Either Caldwell or Meeks would satisfy the Redskins' obligations under the ``Rooney Rule,'' which requires that at least one minority candidate be interviewed. Meeks was an assistant on coach Norv Turner's staff with the Redskins in 2000.
Mora went 27-23 over three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, including an appearance in the NFC championship at the end of the 2004 season, before he was fired a year ago. He's now the defensive backs coach for the Seahawks.
