Gruden will interview with the Vikings, Redskin and Titans

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Bengals offensive coordinator confirmed that three teams have asked for permission (hasn't heard from the Lions) and will interview.

Reports on Monday morning had four teams requesting interviews for Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, starting with the Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings, Tennessee Titans and the Detroit Lions.

Gruden confirmed to reporters that he had interview requests with the Redskins, Vikings and Titans, but hasn't heard from the Lions.

According to Gruden, he will interview in Minnesota, Washington and Tennessee.

If Gruden leaves for one of those vacancies, the obvious in-house candidate starts with Hue Jackson, who has been an offensive coordinator with the Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons, and Oakland Raiders.

In Washington ('03) and Atlanta ('07), Jackson's offenses ranked No. 23 (his Falcons offense had a scoring offense that ranked 29th). However, Oakland's offense ('10) ranked tenth and ninth (as a head coach in '11).
