The search for the next Detroit Lions head coach continues.
So far, the front office has interviewed four potential candidates for the job:
Caldwell, currently the offensive coordinator with the Baltimore Ravens, interviewed last week. Detroitlions.com senior writer Tim Twentyman caught up with him at the team's practice facility in Allen Park.
"You have to be very good in terms of your fundamentals and techniques ruling the day," said Caldwell of his coaching philosophy. "Those are the things that are going to carry you when times are difficult."
The Lions interviewed the former Texans coach on Tuesday.
Kubiak spent eight seasons in Houston and is an offensive-minded coach with a focus on working with quarterbacks. In fact, his entire nine-year career was spent backing up Broncos Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway.
The Titans fired Munchak last week when he refused to fire members of his coaching staff.
Munchak is a former offensive lineman who has spent his entire playing and coaching career with the Oilers/Titans franchise.
The one difference about Munchak compared to the other candidates the Lions have interviewed is he doesn't have experience working with quarterbacks.
Currently the offensive coordinator for the San Diego Chargers, no team can hire Whisenhunt until his team has been eliminated from the playoffs.
The Lions actually flew out to San Diego on Thursday to interview Whisenhunt, who has been to the Super Bowl twice as both a head coach (Arizona) and an offensive coordinator (Pittsburgh).
