Allen Park ó The Lions altered their itinerary a bit.
Instead of interviewing former Titans head coach Mike Munchak on Friday, as originally planned, they had him in Wednesday. Munchak spent most of the day meeting with president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew.
Munchak is the third known candidate to interview with the Lions. Former Texans head coach Gary Kubiak was in Tuesday and Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell was in last week.
Lewand and Mayhew were expected to fly to San Diego either Wednesday night or Thursday morning, where they will interview Chargersí offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt. That interview is expected to take place Thursday or Friday.
Munchak, a Hall of Fame offensive lineman in his playing days, was 22-26 in three seasons with the Titans. He was fired last Saturday after he refused to fire several members of his coaching staff.
Unlike the other candidates, Munchak hasnít worked directly with quarterbacks but he coached solely on the offensive side of the ball before becoming a head coach.
He is also believed to be a candidate for the vacant head coaching job at Penn State.
