Former Raiders linebacker and Green Bay Packers assistant head coach and linebackers coach Winston Moss will interview for the Raiders' head coaching position, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Moss played for the Raiders from 1991-94 and survived the purge of defensive coaches after the Packers defense took much of the blame for their disappointing season.
Moss has already interviewed with the St. Louis Rams. And according to the Sentinel, Moss told the Rams he wasn't ready to be a head coach.
Interviewing Moss, 43, would put the Raiders in compliance with the NFL's Rooney Rule that requires teams to interview a minority candidate.
Moss could be a candidate to be the team's new linebackers coach and or defensive coordinator, too.
If current linebackers coach Don Martindale isn't promoted to defensive coordinator when his contract expires Tuesday, he could find work in Cleveland.
But Raiders owner Al Davis normally hires coaches with an offensive background, making interim head coach Tom Cable the favorite to land the job provided some unknown candidate doesn't emerge.
Considering the Raiders made it clear they didn't pursue Kevin Gilbride and his talk with Davis was a courtesy conversation, Cable and Moss would be the only candidates to interview for the job.
UPDATE: Checked with the Raiders. Moss' name has been mentioned but an interview hasn't been officially set up. I'll update later if something becomes official.
