Ken Whisenhunt could be the next head coach of the Detroit Lions should they fire Jim Schwartz.
Schwartz is widely expected to be fired after another disappointing season.
Whisenhunt was a teammate of general manager Martin Mayhew for two seasons with the Washington Redskins.
The Houston Texans are also interested in Whisenhunt.
Whisenhunt led the Arizona Cardinals to a Super Bowl and is currently the offensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers.
