Caldwell, 63, has been fired twice and spent less than five years combined in Indianapolis and Detroit. On the plus side, he has a career record of 62-50 and was the first Lions coach to guide the team to multiple playoff berths in many years.

Caldwell was out of the NFL last year and the Lions sagged without him. After going 9-7 in 2016 and 2017, the Lions dropped to 6-10 in Matt Patricia‘s first year.

As shown in PFR’s 2019 Head Coaching Search Tracker, the Cardinals also have Dan Campbell, Adam Gase, Kliff Kingsbury, and Zac Taylor on the radar. Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy declined to interview with Arizona and former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is reportedly not interested in moving far away from his family in Wisconsin.

    The Rooney Rule is dumb and insulting. These guys are forced to participate in this charade and interview for coaching jobs they know they are not going to get.

    Owners are not overlooking black coaching candidates! They care about money! They’d hire an alien if he could get the team to a winning record.

      Jim Caldwell is not a token interview. He’s more accomplished than any of candidates they are scheduled to interview. Would not shock me if he’s hired.

      Maybe not. Players seem to really like him. Im sorry but most here make it about race. I want to best coach that gets the most out of my players. Interview 7 blacks and no whites. It doesnt matter. Hire the best guy.

    Jim Caldwell is a great offensive coordinator, just a average head coach. I agree with many thinking this is a rooney rule interview.
