There’s Winston Moss.

The Green Bay linebackers coach had been considered the frontrunner to be the next coach of the Oakland Raiders since fellow former Raiders linebacker Reggie McKenzie took over as Oakland’s general manager earlier this month.

However, Moss’ name has been absent from the interview list in Oakland – until now. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Moss actually interviewed last Saturday, the day before the Packers lost to the New York Giants.

There have been several reported interviews or planned interviews in Oakland. Joining Moss on the list are New Orleans offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael, Denver defensive coordinator Dennis Allen, Philadelphia offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, former Miami interim coach Todd Bowles and Chicago offensive coordinator Mike Tice. Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy backed out to concentrate on the Miami job he ended up not getting.

Schefter reports that Mornhinweg is a candidate to keep an eye on. The Bay Area native was the head coach in Detroit early last decade.

Meanwhile, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that Baltimore offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is not expected back. A natural replacement could be former Oakland coach Hue Jackson. He is a former Baltimore assistant.
