KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Jacksonville offensive coordinator Chris Palmer and Tampa Bay secondary coach Herman Edwards are the latest additions to the list of candidates for the Kansas City Chiefs’ head coaching job.

The Chiefs have received permission from the Jaguars to talk to Palmer, who has been Jacksonville’s offensive coordinator for two seasons. He has also been an assistant at New England and Houston.

Edwards, who was Kansas City’s secondary coach from 1992-94, interviewed Tuesday night in Mobile, Ala., with Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson.

Edwards, who also scouted for the Chiefs from 1990-92 and in 1995, was a defensive back in Philadelphia when Peterson was in the Eagles’ player personnel department.

``My whole pro career has really revolved around Carl, other than this time in Tampa,″ Edwards said.

Other candidates for the job include Jets defensive coordinator Bill Belichick, former Carolina coach Dom Capers and three Chiefs assistants: offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye, defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham and receivers coach Al Saunders.
