The Jacksonville Jaguars are scheduled to interview Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell for head coach.

The Jaguars aren't the only ones interested in Bevell -- he had his second interview for the Chicago Bears' opening Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Another Seahawks employee is also expected to interview with the Jaguars.

Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is scheduled to interview for the job Wednesday. He had his second interview with the Philadelphia Eagles for their head-coaching job Tuesday, ESPN reports.

Another person in the Jaguars head coach interviewing mix is St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who sources said interviewed with the Jaguars on Tuesday.

Current Jaguars defensive coordinator Mel Tucker interviewed for the job Monday.

Tucker was the Jaguars' interim coach in 2011 after Jack Del Rio was fired and interviewed for the Jacksonville job last offseason. Schottenheimer interviewed for the job last season as well.

The search for the Jaguars' next head coach is being led by new general manager David Caldwell. Caldwell fired Mike Mularkey last week after his first season.

Mularkey was hired by former Jaguars general manager Gene Smith.

One last candidate currently being considered for Jaguars' head coach is 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Roman and Caldwell were roommates and teammates in college at John Carroll University.
