OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A pair of Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz coaches are possible candidates to fill vacant Arena Football League jobs.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports coach Gary Reasons and offensive coordinator Sparky McEwen are both being considered for coach of the Las Vegas Gladiators.

Las Vegas fired former head coach Frank Haege last week.

McEwen has also been mentioned as a candidate for the Grand Rapids, Michigan, head coaching job.

Reasons says he is focused on the Yard Dawgz' A-F-L-Two playoff opener against Peoria at 2:30 P-M tomorrow in the Cox Convention Center.

In the franchise's first year, Reasons guided Oklahoma City to a 10-and-6 regular-season record and a playoff berth.
