There was brief discussion current linebackers coach Gary Moeller could move to his original area of expertise, defensive line, and then hire Mike Singletary as linebackers coach. However, that scenario failed to play out because Dick Jauron and his staff didn't want to move Moeller. Brian Billick and the Baltimore Ravens quickly hired Singletary.
There is a chance Dent's name is being bantered about as a public relations move following the negative response the team got for not hiring Singletary.
Chuck Bullough is still being considered as a candidate. It's likely the team will make a decision in the next week, so whoever is hired will be able participate in the scouting combine, which begins February 18.
