AFC West coaching updates

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

With new Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli still pondering the future of coach Herm Edwards and the Raiders still considering candidates in Oakland, there is plenty of work to be done in the AFC West.

Here are some coaching news and developments as we wait for the two major decisions remaining in the division.

Green Bay has hired Dom Capers as their defensive coordinator. It had been reported that Denver was hoping to add Capers to the staff as a defensive assistant. That would have been intriguing because it would have meant new Denver coach Josh McDaniels would have two former head coaches on his defensive staff. Former San Francisco coach Mike Nolan is his new defensive coordinator.

One Kansas City columnist believes Pioli should hire Arizona offensive coordinator Todd Haley to replace Edwards. Haley is a hot name thanks to the Cardinals' success. Haley is believed to be on Oakland's radar.

It's being reported that the Chargers are bringing aboard two former Chicago assistants.
