Colts coordinator Meeks interviews for Redskins job again

ASHBURN, Va. -- Ron Meeks interviewed again for the
Washington Redskins coaching job Tuesday.

The Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator met with owner Dan
Snyder in Indianapolis. The two previously discussed the job at
Snyder's home in Maryland on Jan. 17 and 18.

Meeks and former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel are currently
considered the favorites to succeed Joe Gibbs, but the secretive
and unpredictable nature of the coaching search -- which is about to
enter its fourth week -- has produced surprise turns and names out
of nowhere.

The latest rumored candidate is Steve Mariucci, the former
San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions coach who now works for the NFL
Network. Mariucci, who is in Arizona for the Super Bowl, was
noncommittal when asked about the Redskins opening on the air by
his colleagues Tuesday.

"I am open-minded ... but right now there's nothing to talk
about," Mariucci said.

From Indianapolis, Snyder plans to fly to Arizona for the rest
of Super Bowl week. He is interested in interviewing Giants
defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and New England Patriots
offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels after Sunday's game.
