NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles have requested to interview Bengals DC Paul Guenther for their head-coaching vacancy.
Guenther is wrapping up his second season as the Bengals' defensive boss after being promoted from LBs coach when Mike Zimmer left for Minnesota. Guenther was credited for WLB Vontaze Burfict's rise from UDFA to 2nd-Team All-Pro, and the defense hasn't missed a beat under his watch. Guenther will first interview for the Browns' head-coach job on Sunday. Jan 7 - 11:43 AM

The Browns will interview Bengals DC Paul Guenther for their head-coaching vacancy.

The interview will reportedly take place next week. It's Guenther's first-known interview request since replacing Mike Zimmer two years ago. With Geno Atkins back to full effectiveness, Guenther's 2015 unit was much improved on last season. The Browns are casting a wide net as they look to replace Mike Pettine.

Bengals promoted LBs coach Paul Guenther to defensive coordinator.

With former Bengals assistants installed in both cities, Guenther had drawn interest from Minnesota and Washington. However, NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the Bengals "weren't (going to) let him go." That presumably means they weren't going to grant him permission to interview. Either way, Guenther has ended up in a good spot. The Bengals' LBs coach the past two seasons, Guenther has been on Marvin Lewis' staff since 2005. He's drawn raves for his work with the likes of Vontaze Burfict, and was ready for the next step on the coaching ladder. Although the Bengals are losing one of the league's top assistants in Mike Zimmer, there shouldn't be much of a drop off under Guenther in 2014.
