Report: Capers on Raiders' list
By Bill Williamson
Here’s the run of Green Bay assistants in play in Oakland.
Earlier Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Green Bay linebackers coach Winston Moss has interviewed for the Raiders’ head-coaching job. Now, CBS’ Charlie Casserly reports the Raiders have asked permission to talk to Green Bay defensive coordinator Dom Capers.
New Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie was hired from Green Bay, where he was an executive, earlier this month. There are several other candidates for the job. McKenzie is expected to make the hire in the next seven to 10 days, Casserly said.
Schefter reported Philadelphia offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg may be one of the favorites for the job. He worked in Green Bay with McKenzie in the 1990s and he is a former head coach in Detroit.
