Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell will interview a second time for the Chicago Bears' coaching job. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Bevell and defensive coordinator Gus Bradley were ''heading toward second interviews.'' Bradley is in the running for the Philadelphia Eagles' job. Bevell just finished his second season as Seattle's offensive coordinator and drew high praise for his work with rookie quarterback Russell Wilson. He also served as Minnesota's coordinator from 2006-10 and was an assistant in Green Bay before that, working with Brett Favre. ESPN, citing sources, reported the Bears will also conduct a second interview with Marc Trestman, head coach of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes. The Bears, who declined comment, are looking to replace the fired Lovie Smith.
