Well This is Unexpected: Gailey to be Interviewed

ESPN and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette are reporting that Georgia Tech head coach, and former Steelers offensive coordinator, Chan Gailey will be interviewed this weekend for the Steelers head coaching position.

It had been widely speculated that the Rooneys would announce their choice for the position as soon as Monday, however the Post-Gazette is reporting that the organization has "no immediate timetable to name a succesor (sic) to [Bill] Cowher."

Adding some intrigue to the entire situation is the fact that according to an report Mr. Gailey is being interviewed at the recommendation of Bill Cowher.

Of course one has to wonder what this means for Russ Grimm and Ken Whisenhunt. Though they have each interviewed for multiple head coaching positions, and have scored high marks throughout the league for their abilities (both as coaches and head coaching candidates), neither has received any offer(s) this offseason (i.e. it is believed that Mr. Whisenhunt was offered the head coaching position in Oakland last season, but that he turned that offer down). What, if anything, observers can infer from this latest turn of events is -- as always -- open to interpretation.
