You certainly can't accuse the 49ers of not being thorough in their search for a new offensive coordinator. In their quest to leave no coordinator unturned, the 49ers, according to Pro Football Talk, are interested in former Raiders offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye, who most recently was the RBs coach for the Jets. The 49ers would neither confirm nor deny interest in Raye.
Raye, 62, certainly has a wealth of experience having spent seven separate stints as an offensive coordinator, including 2004-2005 with the Raiders. One thing that might grab the attention of Mike Singletary, who wants to run the ball in 2009: The Raiders were 32nd in rushing offense in 2004 and 29th in 2005.
