CINCINNATI — The Bengals' coordinators spent Monday taking phone calls from other teams arranging interviews for head coaching jobs.
There's a chance Jay Gruden (offense) and Mike Zimmer (defense) could move on.
Gruden said the Vikings, Titans and Redskins have contacted him about interviews later in the week.
Zimmer expects to have three interviews later in the week, though he wouldn't identify the teams.
Both have interviewed for head coaching jobs in the past.
The defense finished the season ranked No. 3 and the offense was No. 10.
"I've been in the league now three years as a coordinator and obviously with my brother (Jon) for a lot of years," Gruden said. "If that challenge were to come about, I think I'd be ready. But I'm happy staying here too."
Zimmer has been Cincinnati's defensive coordinator for six seasons. He's never been a head coach.
"You never know what happens," he said. "Who calls? Who's really interested? Who's not? There's so many different variables."
