Gruden was relieved of his duties after Sunday's 33-7 loss to the New England Patriots, which dropped Washington's record to 0-5 this season. Assistant Bill Callahan was named as the interim replacement.
The inclusion of Tomlin as a potential candidate is notable, as the Steelers signed him to a one-year extension in July that will keep him under contract through the 2021 season. The deal also includes an option for 2022.
Bowles oversaw the New York Jets from 2015-2018. Bieniemy, the latest coveted Andy Reid assistant, has received head coaching consideration over the last two offseasons.
