Is this it?
The Raiders due diligence has led the franchise to interview three candidates.
Considering the state of the franchise, it's surprising the Raiders haven't brought in every coach possible to see who would be best for the job.
But the team has already started hiring assistant coaches (Lionel Washington)?
What happened to Jim Fassel? Did other hot names spurn the team? Who knows?
Barring an unknown candidate, one of three men will be the next head coach.
He was 4-8 as interim head coach and his last two games were his best. But he's also implied he'd return in another capacity. That's he's still at team headquarters working for the team even though he doesn't know if he has a job shows how much he wants to be with the team. Appears to be the favorite to land the job.
Assistant head coach/linebackers for the Green Bay Packers that played linebacker for the Raiders has never been a head coach or a coordinator. A report had him doubting his own ability to be a head coach, which his agent refuted. Could be the Raiders new defensive coordinator if Don Martindale doesn't get the job.
He's the offensive coordinator for the New York Giants. The Raiders made it sound as if his agent begged for an interview, which he got on Thursday after speaking on the phone with owner Al Davis.
