Mike Vrabel reportedly interviewed for the Chargers' head coach vacancy

When Bill Belichick was announced to be leaving the Patriots, many fans voiced their desire to see Mike Vrabel, who had recently been fired from the Titans, to succeed him. It didn't take long for that dream to be crushed, as Jerod Mayo was named the next head coach just one day after Belichick's exit, leaving Vrabel to find a job elsewhere.

Or did it?

Some have speculated he could return to his former team in some capacity, even suggesting he become the team's next general manager. But a recent update proves he may not be interested in making a career jump and wants to continue as a head coach somewhere in the league.

It was first reported on Wednesday afternoon that Vrabel would be interviewing with the Chargers for their vacant head coach position. It was the only interview he has had since he was let go from the Titans nearly two weeks ago, which may not be a good sign for his coaching future.

The seriousness of Los Angeles' interest in him is unknown, but he could be the right guy for the job after Brandon Staley wreaked havoc during his short stint out west.

Vrabel has proven he can elevate a quarterback, as he did with Ryan Tannehill, and as a defensive-minded coach known for his brute playing style when he suited up, he could be an asset for a stacked defense in need of some better coaching.

Perhaps this rules him out entirely from a New England return since there hasn't been much said about that since the initial rumors made the rounds. But with Robert Kraft seemingly having a bit more control and Jerod Mayo potentially being given the okay to hire a new staff, don't be surprised if he does come back home.
