The Oakland Raiders will meet Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg for a vacant head training placement, a league source said, and will meet with Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice on Jan. 24, a league source said.
The Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg worked with Oakland Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie in Green Bay, where Mornhinweg was 1st an offensive assistant and then the quarterbacks coach. Las Vegas odds
Mike Tice, 52 year-old, joined the Chicago Bears in Jan 2010 after spending 3 years with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was promoted from offensive line coach to Chicago’s chief playcaller earlier in the month after Mike Martz left the Bears’ crew.
The chief coach of the Minnesota Vikings from 2001-2005, Mike Tice didn’t expected to get another chance to be a chief coach again, resources close to Tice recounted. Vegas odds
Tice carried the Vikings to a record of 33-34, including a 1-1 record in the playoffs, and during the coach’s stay, the team arrange an NFL record for the most successive games with 300 yards or more on offense with thirty six from 2002-2004.
The Oakland Raiders received approval last Monday to interview defensive coordinator Dennis Allen and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.
McKenzie began to work with the Raiders last Tuesday. His 1st action was to fire coach Hue Jackson, who went 8-8 in his 1 season as coach. McKenzie related at the time he coveted his very own guy as head coach, leading to speculation that one of his old colleagues in Green Bay could get the employment.
The coaching search started while McKenzie interviewed former Miami interim coach Todd.
Bowles was an assistant head coach and secondary coach for the Miami Dolphins then was promoted to supplant Tony Sparano, who was discharged with 3 games remaining in the season. Miami Dolphins went 2-1 under Bowles, who is an applicant for the full-time role there. Bowles will include a second arrangement with the Miami Dolphins, a league resource recounted.
The Oakland Raiders as well interviewed New Orleans Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. for the job whereas New Orleans was in the Bay Area for Saturday’s divisional playoff game towards San Francisco 49ers, a league resource informed last Monday.
Carmichael took control of play-calling obligations when head coach Sean Payton broke his leg in Week 6 and Payton permitted him to continue handling the majority of play-calling through the rest of the season as the New Orleans Saints set NFL records for most offensive yards and passing yards in a season.
Packers linebackers coach Winston Moss, who played 4 seasons with the Oakland Raiders, has voiced attention in the role.
Other possible applicants in Green Bay include offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, defensive coordinator Dom Capers; quarterbacks coach Tom Clements and secondary coach Darren Perry.
Capers and Mornhinweg are the only folk on that list with prior NFL head coaching knowledge. Mornhinweg spent 2 years with the Detroit Lions, building a 5-27 record before being fired after the 2002 season. He has spent the previous 9 seasons as an offensive assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles, along with the previous 6 as offensive coordinator.
Philadelphia Eagles was 5th in the league in scoring (25.1 points per game) and third in total yards (372.7 per game) during his permanency.
Mornhinweg has bonds to the Bay Area, having gone to high school in San Jose and worked 4 seasons as an assistant for
the San Francisco 49ers staff.
