Biekert stays as LB coach _ still no DC

The Raiders announced Greg Biekert would serve as linebackers coach this season, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Chuck Bresnahan will end up being named defensive coordinator.

Although there has been no confirmation of an interview, it’s believed coach Hue Jackson is looking hard at Winston Moss, who served as assistant head coach and as a linebackers coach for the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. The Arizona Cardinals have reportedly requested permission to speak to Moss as well. Arizona and Tennessee are both currently without a defensive coordinator.

Moss has interviewed with the Raiders before and expressed a desire to work for Al Davis.

When Bresnahan was hired Feb. 1, it was without a specific designation. HIs experience is primarily with the secondary and linebackers aside from being a defensive coordinator and he could conceivably work in both areas with the nickel package should Moss come aboard.
