Even with all the scuttlebutt about who Ken Whisenhunt might hire for defensive coordinator, no news is coming anytime soon. Whisenhunt, who was back in Tempe today after returning from the Senior Bowl, said he wants to wait until after the Super Bowl because he is hoping to talk to candidates from both Super Bowl teams. Obviously, that means the idea that Dolphins assistant Todd Bowles was “expected” to be the choice — as was reported this morning out in Florida — is probably off-base, since there are other possibilities (I’m not saying Bowles doesn’t get it, but if there are interviews to come and Whisenhunt is waiting, a decision clearly hasn’t been made yet).
What is interesting will be who he might look at from Green Bay, since there has long been speculation on who he will target with the Steelers. The Packers run a 3-4. Does he try to talk to defensive line coach Mike Trgovac, who was a DC in Carolina for six seasons? Safeties coach Darren Perry, with whom Whisenhunt coached with in Pittsburgh? Assistant head coach Winston Moss? (These are just guesses, of course. We’ll see what happens after the Packers and Steelers actually play).
