Black and Blue all over: Winston Moss' future

Sorry for the late start here Friday morning. Circumstances prevailed. Such is life.

Topping the NFC North storylines is a piece from Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, who reports that Green Bay assistant head coach/linebackers Winston Moss is scheduled to interview with Oakland owner Al Davis for the Raiders' open head coaching job. The meeting, expected to occur in person, likely will happen this weekend.

Moss will be the third known candidate for the Raiders' job, along with New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride and Oakland interim coach Tom Cable. (Gilbride interviewed by phone.) Moss played for the Raiders from 1991-94 and is considered a future head coach by many in the NFL. He also has interviewed for St. Louis' vacant head coaching job and is one of two defensive assistants the Packers didn't fire after a 6-10 season.

While Moss is highly regarded, it appears he does not have a strong chance to be the Packers' next defensive coordinator. Coach Mike McCarthy interviewed former San Francisco coach Mike Nolan on Thursday and is also giving consideration to former Jacksonville defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
