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.
