WASHINGTON (AP) -Steve Spagnuolo's interview with the Washington Redskins turned into a marathon.
The architect of the defense that won the Super Bowl spent most of Wednesday meeting with Redskins owner Dan Snyder, with talks resuming in the morning and still ongoing as of early evening.
That's on top of the 90 minutes the two spent on the phone Monday evening and the first face-to-face portion of the interview at Snyder's house Tuesday night. The talks ran late Tuesday, with the New York Giants defensive coordinator spending the night in a guesthouse on the owner's property, as other candidates have done during the team's monthlong coaching search.
The talks were confirmed by two people familiar with the Redskins selection process who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has preferred to keep the details private.
r. The schedule with Spagnuolo is more compressed because the Redskins had to wait until after the Super Bowl to interview him.
Spagnuolo, Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Ron Meeks and former Giants coach Jim Fassel are the three leading contenders to replace Joe Gibbs, who resigned Jan. 8. Snyder has met several times with both Meeks and Fassel, and the owner has said he would like to have a coach in place by the end of the week.
Spagnuolo became a hot commodity during the Giants' championship run, which culminated with their 17-14 Super Bowl upset of the New England Patriots.
