Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator will have a busy schedule immediately after the wild-card game against the Buffalo Bills as he will be interviewing for at least three head coaching vacancies.
While that will be an exciting development for Eberflus’ career, that’s not where his focus is. Instead, he is keeping his focus on getting the Colts defense ready to face one of the best offenses in the NFL.
“I think really what you want to do is just focus because a lot of those things are in the future and I know that future is in a few days or whenever that is but we’re in a day-to-day business,” Ebeflus said Wednesday. “We have to focus on where we are and where we are is focusing on third down today and red zone tomorrow and that’s where we need to be. You have to kind of compartmentalize a lot of that, but again your whole energy has to be focused on that.”
Eberflus has interviews set up with the New York Jets, Houston Texans and Los Angeles Chargers for their head coaching vacancies.
Eberflus even said that its general manager Chris Ballard who has set everything up for the interviews and that it hasn’t been much of a topic of conversation over the last week.
Most of the interviews are set for Sunday, the day after the Colts travel to face the Bills at Bills Stadium.
“Not all of them, but I do think – everything goes through Chris (Ballard), so they put everything through Chris Ballard,” Eberflus said. “Chris Ballard then takes it from there and there has been very minimal communication about that, not in a bad way but just – yes, this is where they are and then we just move forward from there.”
It will be interesting to see where the interviews lead for Eberflus but his focus right now is on stopping the duo of Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs.
