Redskins officials were in Seattle and it was believed that the interview with Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell was to take place Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the situation.
Under NFL rules governing such interviews with head coaching candidates who are assistants on teams with first-round playoff byes, the interview must take place in the city in which the assistant coach works and the assistant coach’s team can determine when it takes place.

The Washington Redskins have requested permission from the Seattle Seahawks to interview Seattle’s offensive coordinator, Darrell Bevell, for their vacant head coaching job, according to a person familiar with the situation.
It’s not clear when the interview will take place. Under league rules, Bevell is eligible to interview for head coaching jobs this weekend since the Seahawks have a first-round playoff bye.
The Redskins are seeking a replacement for Mike Shanahan, who was fired Monday. Bevell could be an attractive option after working with young quarterback Russell Wilson in Seattle.
