WASHINGTON -- Perry Fewell's interview for the Washington Redskins coaching job has been set for Monday.

John Wooten of the Fritz Pollard Alliance said Sunday that the New York Giants defensive coordinator will meet with Washington general manager Bruce Allen at Redskins Park.

Wooten monitors coaching searches as part of his group's efforts to encourage the hiring of minorities in the NFL.

Fewell becomes the fifth known candidate to interview as the potential replacement for Mike Shanahan, who was fired last week.

Allen met with Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell at Redskins Park on Sunday. Caldwell was head coach of the Indianapolis Colts for three seasons.

Allen has also interviewed Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Rich Bisaccia and Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.
