Oakland candidate scorecard
By Bill Williamson
Reggie McKenzie is turning many stones.
It seems, at least once a day, a new name emerges in the new Raiders general manager's search to find a head coach in Oakland. Tuesday night, the Chicago Tribune reported that the Raiders have sought permission to interview Mike Tice — only recently promoted to the Bears' offensive coordinator position after a stint as the team’s offensive line coach.
Like Philadelphia offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg – whose name has surfaced as another candidate McKenzie will interview – Tice is a former NFL head coach. He led the Vikings from 2002-05.
Below is a list of the six candidates who have reportedly had or will have interviews. Keep in mind that several Green Bay assistants, including linebackers coach Winston Moss, may surface as well.
