Add two more names to the list of candidates for the vacant head coaching position with the Montreal Alouettes.

The Alouettes have interviewed Kansas City Chiefs quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn and are set to talk to B.C. Lions secondary coach Mark Washington.

Prior to his move to Kansas City, Zorn was the head coach of the Washington Redskins for two seasons, compiling a record of 12-20.

As a player, Zorn played quarterback for 11 seasons, nine of which were spent with the Seattle Seahawks. He threw for over 21,000 yards with 111 touchdowns and 141 interceptions.

Washington, who has been the secondary coach with the B.C. Lions for the last five seasons, is travelling to Palm Beach, Florida to interview with general manager Jim Popp and owner Bob Wetenhall.

Washington played for the Alouettes from 1997 to 2002 and was a member of the 2002 Grey Cup team.
 
The Alouettes have already interviewed former Edmonton Eskimos head coach Danny Macocia, ESPN college football analyst Dan Hawkins and Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Mike Miller, among others.

The team has also reportedly asked for permission to speak to Toronto Argonauts special teams coach Mike O'Shea.

Earlier this month, Trestman was hired to be the head coach of the Chicago Bears.
