Sauders interviews for Chiefs job

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Carl Peterson began the Kansas City Chiefs' search for a new head coach Monday by interviewing offensive coordinator Al Saunders for several hours at Arrowhead Stadium.

Saunders was not the only name on Peterson's list of candidates. The Chiefs probably will request permission from the Jets to speak with head coach Herman Edwards.

Various local media reports said Peterson met with former Cleveland Browns coach Butch Davis on Monday in Kansas City, but Peterson was meeting with Saunders when the supposed interview with Davis was taking place.

Also, a source close to the situation said Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, a possible candidate, was not in Peterson's box at Sunday's game against Cincinnati at Arrowhead Stadium, as was reported on a Kansas City radio station.

The Chiefs were trying to schedule an interview with Washington defensive coordinator Gregg Williams for next week and appear to have an interest in Denver offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.

Peterson and Edwards are longtime friends. Peterson in January 1999 was the first to see Edwards' potential as a head coach. Peterson interviewed Edwards in Mobile, Ala., site of the Senior Bowl, for the Chiefs' head-coaching job, then vacant after Marty Schottenheimer's resignation.

In Peterson's perfect world, his coaching search might begin and end with Edwards, but the situation is more complicated than that. Edwards has two seasons remaining on his Jets contract.

The Chiefs not only need permission from the Jets to speak with Edwards but also must compensate the Jets with draft picks and/or players if they were to hire Edwards.
"I don't want to get into that because it's a pretty sensitive issue," Peterson said when asked whether he would relinquish picks for Edwards. "I've done it before."

The Chiefs gave the Rams second- and third-round draft picks for Dick Vermeil upon hiring him five years ago.

The Chiefs are free to contact the Jets regarding Edwards now that the regular season is over, but the Jets are not obligated to grant that permission.

At a regularly scheduled, season-ending news conference in New York, Edwards wouldn't address his interest in leaving the Jets for the Chiefs.
"I'm not going to get into that conversation," he said. "It's a moot point.
"I don't want to keep talking about it. There's no need to talk about it, really. I'm happy to be the coach here, and I'm going to be the coach here."

Saunders was scheduled to interview for head-coaching vacancies today with the Vikings in Minnesota and Thursday with the Texans in Houston. The Detroit Lions have told the Chiefs they would formally request permission to speak with Saunders and could meet with him over the weekend or next week.

The Vikings and Texans asked for and received that permission Monday.
Peterson's interview with Saunders began in the early afternoon and continued long after the end of regular office hours.

I'd rather have Butch Davis...

"and appear to have an interest in Denver offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak."

I think he's only allowed to do one interview. If so, it will be with Houston.

I would rather anyone but a donkey....scour the old folks home carl. Only compensation owed there would be some Doans pills and plenty of sleep.

Boy that would cause an offseason full of Taco John smack...

Well as Gruden coached TB over the Faiders... Kubiak could do it for us 2 times a year over our #1 rival at the moment.

I think Kubiak would be a decent HC if he finds some other decent assistants... He knows how to utilize RB's, and would hopefully bring back our PA attack to the forefront.. That would enable our WR to hopefully get some seperation...He would probably be the only guy I would have replace saunders to run our Offense if we do not get AS as coach...
