Jim Caldwell, the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, interviewed for the Washington Redskins’ open coaching position on Sunday at Redskins Park, a team spokesman confirmed Sunday evening.

Caldwell met with Redskins general manager Bruce Allen, director of player personnel Morocco Brown and director of pro personnel Scott Campbell during the interview, according to someone familiar with the meeting.

It was the second interview in two days for Caldwell, who interviewed with the Detroit Lions at their facility in Allen Park, Mich. on Saturday.

Caldwell impressed the Lions’ decision-makers with a detailed review of quarterback Matthew Stafford’s play during this past season, breaking down his throws and offering corrections and suggestions for improvement, according to multiple reports.

NFL Network reported Sunday that Caldwell did the same thing in his interview with the Redskins, using the opportunity to critique and deconstruct some of the decisions quarterback Robert Griffin III made in his 13 games this season.

Caldwell, who turns 59 on Jan. 16, was hired as the Ravens’ quarterbacks coach before last season and added the responsibility of offensive coordinator in December after Cam Cameron was fired.

He spent the previous three years as the Indianapolis Colts’ coach and went 26-22 during his tenure, guiding the team to an appearance in Super Bowl XLIV in 2009. He was fired after the 2011 season, when the Colts went 2-14 in part because quarterback Peyton Manning missed the year because of a neck injury.
