Multiple coaching opportunities are open at the end of the college and NFL football seasons. Sometimes teams and universities keep searching, while others will take who they targeted for a long time.

On Thursday morning, it has been reported the Washington Redskins will hire Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden to be their head coach. Washington previously fired Mike Shanahan after a disappointing 3-13 season. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio interviewed for the position earlier this week.

At the college ranks, Penn State will hire Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin to take over. Bill O'Brien, Penn State's previous head coach, took the head coaching job for the Houston Texans last week. He previously served in the NFL as an offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots. Greg Roman interviewed with Penn State after the 2011 regular season and earlier this week for the job.

There are still opportunities for a head coaching position, but things are becoming limited in a short window. The Minnesota Vikings requested to interview Greg Roman yesterday, according to Adam Caplan.

Teams can interview assistant coaches who are still in the playoffs for this week only. Once the divisional playoff games begin, they cannot be interviewed until the Pro Bowl Bye week or unless they're eliminated from the postseason. San Francisco 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula is expected to draw interest, according to Jim Harbaugh.
