As teams around the NFL continue searching for candidates to fill vacancies in their organization, Cardinals fans wait with bated breath to see where Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles may end up.

Bowles has reportedly interviewed with the Bears, the 49ers and the Falcons. But who had the best shot at snagging him?

Here are the latest updates on Bowles’ interviews and potential hirers, according to league reporters:

Tuesday, Jan. 13

Monday, Jan. 12

Bowles set for second interview with Falcons (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who’s has moved to the forefront of the Atlanta Falcons’ coaching search, has a second interview with the team scheduled for Wednesday, according to a person familiar with the search.

Sunday, Jan. 11

A source with ESPN also said Bowles’ interview with the Falcons lasted five hours. The report also said Bowles would have current Cardinals quarterbacks coach Freddie Kitchens in mind for offensive coordinator.

Rex Ryan, who was also a potential candidate for the spot, will reportedly be the new head coach of the Buffalo Bills.

This is, of course, pending whether Bowles remains available.

The New York Jets reportedly are very interested in Bowles as well.

Wherever he goes, the Cardinals may need to find a new defensive coordinator — and reports say former Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau might be a top candidate.
