And yet another name is added to the head-coaching candidate list. According to Jason LaCanfora, the Bears have received permission to interview Seahawks' offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, making it a dirty dozen of candidates.

Bevell's coaching resume is a pretty interesting one. In addition to coordinating Russell Wilson's option runs and offense, he also ran the 2009 Vikings offense, the season Brett Favre excelled in purple (you know, the season before Corey Wootton ended him - unfortunately, Bevell coordinated that season too). He spent five season as the Minnesota offensive coordinator before moving to Seattle in 2011. Prior to Minnesota, he was a coach with the Green Bay Packers.

What are your thoughts on Darrell Bevell as a possible head coaching candidate?
