This is an excerpt from the Star Ledger article:
Jets defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell is confident the San Francisco 49ers aren't just placating the league by following its mandate to interview at least one minority candidate for a head coaching vacancy. He feels he has a real shot to become the 49ers' next head coach when he interviews with general manager Terry Donahue today in Los Angeles.
For Cottrell the interview will be his seventh for a head coaching post in the NFL over the past three years. He has interviewed with the Jets (before Herman Edwards was hired), Buffalo, Carolina, Houston, Indianapolis and San Diego.
Cottrell, 55, flew to Los Angeles yesterday afternoon and will spend the entire day with Donahue today before returning tomorrow.
"I'm feeling pretty good about it," Cottrell said yesterday before leaving. "I think it's going to be worthwhile for me. I don't think I'm going out to be a token or fill a quota. I think Terry is really interested in hiring me."
