On Monday, the Super Bowl champions' head coach was interviewing running backs coach Duce Staley and wide receivers coach Mike Groh for the vacant position, according to ESPN.
Staley clearly has the respect of the current crop of running backs, which includes upcoming free agent LeGarrette Blount.
"I can't say enough about [running backs coach] Duce [Staley]," Blount told BleedingGreenNation.com. "Just for the simple fact that how I was coached. How good he helped me understand things. I feel like Duce is one the best running back coaches -- one of the best coaches I've ever had in my entire life."
Under Groh, wide receiver Nelson Agholor enjoyed a career-saving season with 62 catches for 768 yards and eight touchdowns.
In his first two years, Agholor totaled 59 catches for three touchdowns.
