Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell will interview a second time for the Chicago Bears’ coaching job.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Bevell and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley were “heading toward second interviews.” Bradley is in the running for the Eagles’ job, and will head to Philadelphia today.

Bevell just finished his second season as Seattle’s offensive coordinator and drew high praise for his work with rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.

The Eagles also interviewed former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, and were scheduled to interview Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, on Monday, bringing the total number of known candidates to 11.

Whisenhunt led the Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance in his second season. Arizona won its second straight NFC West title the following year.
