Bowles sleeper candidate in Detroit

One day after Detroit invited back Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz for a second interview, it did the same with Miami assistant head coach Todd Bowles, who is the sleeper in this race. The fact that Bowles is the second coaching candidate to be brought back, and to meet with Lions owner William Clay Ford, speaks volumes.

Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier also is expected to be brought back for a second interview, and Detroit will interview San Diego defensive coordinator Ron Rivera on Wednesday.

But barring unforeseen developments — and the Lions always could decide to bring in one more candidate to interview — Detroit’s search will come down to Schwartz, Bowles, Frazier and Rivera.
