WASHINGTON (AP) -The first round of the Washington Redskins coaching search neared completion Thursday when owner Dan Snyder interviewed Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Ron Meeks and also spoke to Seattle Seahawks defensive backs coach Jim Mora for a second day.
Meeks was to spend Thursday night in a guesthouse owned by Snyder and have a second interview Friday in what has become routine treatment for most of the candidates for the job, according to a person familiar with the selection process. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Redskins haven't publicly stated the names of any candidates.
Mora, the former Atlanta Falcons head coach, spent the night at the guesthouse after a first interview on Wednesday after Snyder sent a plane to bring him from Seattle. Another candidate who has yet to be identified spent last Friday night at the guesthouse in between sessions with Snyder on Friday and Saturday.
Snyder has remained in the Washington area during the entire coaching process, conducting each formal interview at his home in Potomac, Md., after the candidate is flown to Washington on one of his private planes.
Meeks brings to five the number of interviewed candidates, including Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and Redskins assistant Gregg Williams. Williams has met with the owner on four occasions, although some sessions have been less formal than others.
Once the second interview with Meeks is completed, the person familiar with the process said Snyder will spend Friday evaluating the candidates. The owner will then decide whether to invite any of the five back for another interview or whether to pursue other names on his list.
One of those names is Indianapolis assistant Jim Caldwell, but Colts owner Jim Irsay said Thursday night Caldwell would replace head coach Tony Dungy if Dungy decides to retire.
The Redskins are seeking a replacement for Joe Gibbs, who resigned last week.
