As their search for a head coach continues, the Washington Redskins will give Colts defensive coordinator Ron Meeks a second interview Tuesday in Indianapolis.

The Washington Post reported that the session had been rescheduled for Monday.

Meeks, an assistant coach with the Redskins in 2000, first met with owner Dan Snyder about the job on Jan. 17 and 18.

With defensive coordinator Gregg Williams being fired Saturday, Meeks and former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel are currently in the final two. It's possible, however, the Redskins could interview Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo after the Super Bowl.

Fassel appears to be the leading candidate after Washington hired Jim Zorn as offensive coordinator and Greg Blache as defensive coordinator. Those were his two top choices for those roles, and Fassel was close to getting the job four years ago until Joe Gibbs came out of retirement.

The Redskins are saying they are undecided about whom they will hire as head coach. Snyder has been insistent on having a strong interview process before hiring the replacement for Gibbs, who retired following the team's playoff loss to the Seahawks.
