CSN-Philadelphia reports the Eagles are interested in Green Bay safeties coach Darren Perry as a candidate for defensive cooridnator, even intimating there could already be an offer extended behind the scenes.
I’m hearing the Raiders are interested in talking to Perry about the the same vacancy. Perry was the Raiders secondary coach in 2007 and 2008 and a defensive backs coach for Pittsburgh in 2004-06. He has not been a coordinator in the NFL and his level of interest in rejoining the Raiders is not known.
The Raiders have already spoken to former defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan, but my understanding is if he rejoins the club, it will be as linebackers coach, replacing Mike Haluchak.
Bresnahan coached linebackers for the Indianapolis Colts in 1996-96 and coached linebackers for the Florida Tuskers in the UFL in 2009 before becoming defensive coordinator and also coaching linebackers in 2010.
