Whisenhunt was fired Dec. 31 after six years in Arizona. He led the Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance in his second season and Arizona won its second straight NFC West title the following year. But after a 4-0 start this season, the Cardinals lost 11 of their last 12 to finish 5-11 for the second time in three years.
The Eagles also were interviewing Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden on Monday, bringing the total number of known candidates to 11. Among those were three high-profile college coaches who decided to stay at their schools: Notre Dame's Brian Kelly, Oregon's Chip Kelly and Penn State's Bill O'Brien.
